Here it is — your 1940 Index! We of the staff have fin- 
shed our work and it remains for you, the readers, to de- 
termine to what extent our aims have been fulfilled. 

To present as complete a record of school life as is pos- 
sible has been the purpose of all the work on this book. 
Combined, however, with all of the activities of this year 
are the memories of other years and the work of forty- 
nine other staffs, which have preceded this Fiftieth Anni- 
versary Annual. 

Always, it is not the book itself but the way in which 
t is used that determines its real value. Our hope is that 
this annual will serve as a book of memories and also be 
regarded as symbolic of fifty years of progress in the uni- 

To accomplish our aim we have divided the book into 
six sections. The Administrative Division contains informa- 
tion on the faculty and its governing bodies besides ma- 
terial on the student boards, which theoretically assist in 
school government. Writeups and pictures of underclass- 
men come to you in Aspiring. In Aggregate you will find 
organizations, or group activities of students. Athletic 
events and individuals are in the portion called Athletic. 
The deserving seniors, having completed four long years, 
occupy a separate section, Accomplished. Those activities, 
some individual and some collective, which could have no 
other title than Amazing, complete our book. 

And so, here it is! 


R M A L 


Jimmy Lockyer ... a winning 
smile . . . rugged honesty . . . faith- 
fulness . . . intelligence ... a slightly 
gruff voice that said, "I'll do it," and 
meant it . . . six feet of sturdy 
height . . . and, above all, a great 
capacity for hard work and real 
friendship. Those were some of the 
reasons why Jimmy Lockyer has been 
mourned by all who knew him. 

His friends were shocked when 
the news came in early summer, 
"James Lockyer, 19, a freshman 
music student at Illinois State Normal 
University, was drowned Saturday 
in Osterkamp Lake east of Gillespie. 

His four companions, Leland Wil- 
son, and his two brothers, Jesse and 
Rollo, and a neighbor were unable 
to state the cause of the tragedy. 
The youth was given first aid at the 
lake, and then was taken to a 
doctor's office but was beyond re- 
suscitation. Burial was at Gillespie, 
his home." 




Weep no more, woeful shepherds, 
weep no more, 
For Lycidas, your sorrow is not 

Sunk though he be beneath the 

watery floor; 
So sinks the day-star in the ocean 

And yet anon repairs his drooping 

And tricks his beams, and with 

new-spangled ore 
Flames in the forehead of the 

morning sky: 
So Lycidas sunk low, but mounted 

Through the dear might of him that 
walked the waves, 
Where, other groves and other 

streams along, 
With nectar pure his oozy locks he 

And hears the unexpressive nuptial 

— Milton 






Dapper . . . genial . . . clever . . . hospitable . . . busy but never 
bustling . . . with a twinkle in his eyes and a wisecrack on his lips 
. . . Professor Chris A. DeYoung, Ph.D., (1934); A.B., Hope Col- 
lege; M.A., Teachers College, Columbia University; Ph.D., North- 
western University . . . Head of the Department of Education, Di- 
rector of the Extension Division, Campus Culbertson, proud pos- 
sessor of a lovely wife, a grey Chewy, and a home we'd like to 
own, has endeared himself to the whole school. He came to us 
from Northwestern University, where he had once been a student 
and then a professor, to head our Education Department and to 
sponsor the Student Council, just to mention a few of his activities. 
As Director of the Extension Division, he does almost as much travel- 
ing as Eleanor Roosevelt and her husband put together. 

He is important, too, as a lecturer and as a writer. His special 
interest is public school budgeting, and he is the author of Budget- 
ing in Public Schools, published in 1936. He is also a frequent 
contributor to leading educational magazines. Oh, yes, and we 
must mention that he has spent four very interesting years in India. 

All in all, we take pride in dedicating this, our Fiftieth Anniver- 
sary INDEX, to one of our favorite people on the campus.

The faculty of Illinois State Normal University numbers 
over two hundred people. Since a group of this size is too 
unwieldy for administrative purposes the formation of a 
body of more suitable size became necessary. This smaller 
group is known as the University Senate. Included in this 
body are the officers of the administration, who form the 
Administrative Council; the directors of divisions; the de- 
partment heads; the head librarian; and the principals of 
the affiliated schools. 

The Senate, thus composed wholly of faculty members, 
serves as a legislative body and determines the policies by 
which the school will be conducted. The Senate is likewise 
the active body which enforces stringently the rules of the 
university, which have been set up by the faculty for the 
student body to follow. Whenever necessary, important 
matters are proposed for the consideration of the whole 
faculty. From left to right: 

R. W. Fairchild, President of the University 

H. H. Schroeder, Dean of the University 

H. W. Adams, Head of the Department of Physical Science

The Faculty. . . 

§ ■ 


■ ■ 

Every member of the Illinois State Normal University 
faculty is entitled to a post office box in the main office 
and this year eleven new name plates were inserted to 
show the following additions to the faculty: George W. 
Bodecker, Edith L. Goldman, John W. Green, Olivia Han- 
sen, Jane Kerkhof, Margaret Lawrence, Merril Eugenia 
Pope, Jesse E. Young, Orville L. Young, Donald L. Weis- 
mann, and Henri Pearcy. 

The 1940 Index staff regets that it is unable to present 
photogaphs of all of the faculty; the cost of new plates 
would have exceeded the extremely limited budget caused 
by this year's reduced apportionment. However, since Nor- 
mal students have visual images of most of the 201 mem- 
bers of the faculty, we are including only the pictures of 
the seventeen department heads of the university and are 
listing all other members of the faculty for both semesters.

Student Council 


the beginning of the inter-school council gatherings 

You've really got something if you have nineteen people 
working together in a group like this! Why? Because this 
organ of student government has to speak for 1945 people 
and that's a lot of speakin' for. 

The Student Council rates as its achievement of the year 
the beginning of inter-school council gatherings. Appre- 
ciating the achievements of other schools and understand- 
ing their problems has made the council realize the need 
in our own school for an active student government. 

In an attempt to gain better coordination between the 
various boards of the school a movement has been 
launched to centralize the student members through the 

council. This would give the council an opportunity to 
secure a more unified representation of school affairs. 

Standing up for the rights of the student body is John 
Scott, president. Sedentary upholders of student wishes 
from left to right in the front row are Beth Davis, Faye 
Barton, Charlotte Walters, Genevieve Atkinson, Virginia 
Dunmire, Merlin Erdmann, James De Pew, secretary, and 
James Cameron, and in the second row Betty Banker, 
Warren Frink, Clarabelle Huggins, Harold Fairchild, vice- 
president, Dee Norton, Edward Lukow, and Robert King. 
Hal Hubbard wasn't in the picture because he was busy 
writing filler for the Vidette. 



Chop! Chop! Chop! Well, alright! That's what they do 
and we dig! dig! dig! to balance the book. These dollar- 
dividers have as chairman H. O. Lathrop, front row right, 
and to his left are Betty Wolfe and Max Chiddix; second 
row, Wade Hannah, Moreen Kelley, and Clarence Cald- 
well; third row, Miss Alta Day, H. W. Adams, and Miss 
Eleanor Flagg. Margaret Parret is the missing member. 


They're the ones — that is if you're thinking in terms of 
a smooth-running athletic program. Mr. Horton, front 
right, calls the signals for this group and Miss Esther 
Hume, Warren Sperry, and Jim Hardgrove answer from 
left to right in the front row, while T. J. Douglas, H. J. 
Ivens, Dr. Miller, Mr. Hancock, and Miss Barto respond for 
the back row. Larry Kindred and Mr. Holmes missed the 
signal on this play. 


If you're looking for the people who provided the pro- 
grams you saw this year, then stop right now and start 
thanking or otherwise. The twelve promoters are, front 
row left to right, Doris Coulter, Dr. Browne, chairman; 
Margaret Parret, Norma Morenz, Lyle Young; and second 
row, Jack Childress, Mr. Fries, Mr. Sherrard, Mr. Cross, and 
William Staker. Miss Richards and Mr. Fraley were absent. 


Directing speech activities both local and international, 
and we do mean the annual debate with the London lads, 
is the duty of these people. Providers of the Pro and Con 
include Dr. F. L. D. Holmes, seated at the desk, and from 
left to right, Mr. Lancaster, Mr. Harper, Eleanor Kloss, Max 
Chiddix, and John Keltner. Miss Mabel Clare Allen and 
Dr. Sorrenson are also on the board. 



When it comes to deciding when, where, and for how 
long to hold what event, this group has the final word. 
These date-dictators are chairmanned by Dean Linkins, 
second row left, and other members are Edward Lukow, 
Dr. Houston, Hal Hubbard, Jack LaBounty, and seated from 
left to right, Faye Barton, Dean Barton, Miss Keaton, Mrs. 
Mae Warren, and Barbara Orr. 


Lights! Action! Camera! Behind the scenes of every dra- 
matic production is a bunch of regular troopers. These 
star-makers are chairmanned by Mable Clare Allen, ex- 
treme right; others on the board from left to right are John 
Keltner, Dorothy Wells, Wilma Austin, William Staker, 
Ellen Sorrenson, Margaret Parret, Eleanor Kloss, and Beth 


It's not so much what they do as it is the way that they 
do it, and for proof they offer you this Index because 
there's an ancient adage about the proof of a book being 
in the reading. James Cameron, the man with the phone, 
chairmanned this group, and continuing from right to left 
we have Virginia Dunmire, Mrs. Marion Taylor, Dorothy 
Shea, and Mr. Ralph Boyd. 


Here we have the determiners of the policy of our semi- 
weekly rag; in short, these seven substitutes for Will Hayes 
decide what you don't read on Tuesdays and Fridays. 
Counting noses-for-news from left to right, we have Mary 
Teresa Salmon, Roy Russell, Raymond Pettigrew, Beth 
Davis, Hal Hubbard, chairman, Ellen Jean Brenneman, and 
Professor E. R. Johnson, sponsor.

The Prom!! Those two words had the power to move 
the Junior class to minor miracles. First was the election- 
day miracle when the well-known ratio worked in reverse 
and the Juniors elected an all-male group of officers. 
Kenny Haughey was selected to lead the class promward 
as president; Don Fitzsimmons, that typical "Joe College," 
was elected vice-president; and the job of minute-writing 
and money-handling (an important thing in a Junior class) 
went to Jack Childress. Student council representatives 
elected were Jim DePew, Merlin Erdmann, and the one 
and only Junior woman to come out on the long end of 
the votes — Clar Huggins. 

The officers and the sponsor, Mr. Sherrard, emerged 
from their first conference with the second miracle — an ad- 
visory board that really came to meetings! These unusual 
members were Diddy Brumbach, Jim Cameron, Dorothy 
Classen, June Davidson, Jeanette Eymann, Morton Filer- 
man, Jewel Goodman, Bob Hammond, James Hardgrove, 
Rose Homann, Roy Hostettler, Betty Hurdle, Ruth Jenkins, 
Louise Matthews, Ruth Parkinson, Devere Ring, Tom Stom- 
baugh, Mildred Theis, Dolly Vance, and Mary Zeilman. 

The third event bordering on the miraculous occurred 
on October 13 when, after doing everything but bribe the 
Calendar Board, the Junior class was finally given a date 
for a dance — the result was the Junior Jump and Jive. 
Thereafter the Juniors gave flocks of dances — well, any- 
way, two or three — but the most successful from a purely 
mercenary point of view was the little get-together after 
the De Kalb-Normal game. After counting dimes and de- 
ducting for several bottles of coke that seemed to have 
disappeared, Jack actually had the privilege of recording 
twenty-four dollars in the little blue book. 

The men may have predominated in the list of officers, 
but when it came to names in the news, the girls got their 
share of glory. Three juniors of the fair sex reigned over 
Homecoming activities when Dolly Vance wore the queen's 

crown while Fern Green and Betty Hurdle served as attend- 
ants. Joyce Kinsey gained fame by being the only girl in 
the Industrial Arts department. Lola Johnson, vice-presi- 
dent of Women's League on our campus, was elected 
president of the Illinois Association of Women's Leagues. 

These intellectual geniuses, the Juniors, found it no 
trouble at all to produce from their midst the heads of 
both the Vidette and the Index. Hal Hubbard edited the 
Vidette with Jerry Martin as assistant. Roy Russell and Don 
Fitzsimmons split the job of Sports Editor of the Vidette. 
Roy served the first semester and Don took over for the 
second semester. Jim Cameron headed the Index staff with 
associates Clar Huggins and Merlin Erdmann; Virginia 
Dunmire served as first-lady business manager. 

Many stalwart junior men were on the athletic field, 
either inside or out, to do or die for dear old Normal. 
While Normal students were cheering as their toes, frozen 
stiff, dropped off one by one, Hal Hubbard, Harold 
Gaffey, and Floyd Covill were out on the field giving the 
pigskin a free ride in the direction of Normal's goal posts. 
And those scantily-clad men running over the hill and dale 
included Juniors Irvin Tubb and Ace Hardgrove, track cap- 
tain. When the time came to move indoors, John Baldini 
and Le Roy Brandt could be seen dribbling and passing and 
chalking-up points for the red and white. The mighty 
muscle men of the mat had the help of Roy Russell, a 
junior who always came out on top — literally. 

What with one thing and another, the Juniors performed 
minor miracles all year long. But the major miracle came 
after school closed — yes, after a year of trying to raise 
both money and ideas the Junior class performed the final 
miracle of the year — the Junior Prom! 

Traveling homeward via the thumb, dragging their bulg- 
ing suitcases behind them, the Juniors looked forward to 
student teaching and hoped the next Junior class would do 
as well by them.

Came fall, and five hundred fifty-two pseudo-scholars 
re-pasted battered red stickers on their laundry bags and 
started out on a second Normal year. After that first hectic 
week of reunion at the Co-op and other local spots, the 
political circles began to buzz and petitions flew around 
and about. When the totals had been tallied, Jean Ring 
had received the right to swing the gavel. Bob Schulz 
outpaced all opponents and garnered the position of vice- 
president while Mary Rita Kane showed that she had what 
it takes by winning the office of secretary-treasurer. Stu- 
dent council representation was delegated to Betty Banker, 
Ed Lukow, and Harold Fairchild. 

When the officers had finally got their History of Civil- 
ization notes in for the first six weeks, they compared notes 
of another nature and selected a class Advisory Board. 
Guiding the class activities were Helen Arrowsmith, Mil- 
dred Babington, Paul Bartolini, Florence Brownfield, Clif- 
ford Bury, Jack Catlin, Howard Clark, Bob Ferguson, 
Marion Ferris, Alten Grandt, Kathryn Hinman, Eunice 
Irwin, Orvetta Keyes, Larry Kindred, Lester Litwiller, Jim 
McBride, Mary Lois Miller, Vera Morris, Florence Rice, 
Eileen Spires, Charles Thomas, and Dorothy Wells. Spon- 
sor Professor C. M. Hammerlund aided the group in setting 
up the program for the year. 

After arranging this business of who was to do what in 
regard to running the class, individual sophomores began 
to carry on in their own special ways. 

First of these to come into the light were Mary Rita Kane 
and Mary "Teeter" Salmon, who lent a pulchritudinous 
touch to homecoming festivities as attendants to the Home- 
coming Queen. 

Hollywood talent scouts might have found several some- 
things of interest if they had been around the university 
theatre this year. When Thorton Wilder's "Our Town" was 
presented, Sophomores Quen Mooberry, Reva Finfrock, and 
Les Litwiller were right out there before the footlights. 

Likewise taking their bows after the Jester's production of 
"You Can't Take It With You" were Bob Schulz, Dorothy 
Wells, and Harold Hanner, whose performance as 
Grandpa Vanderhof made theatrical history here at 

If you spent your Saturday afternoons last fall where 
you should have spent them — down watching the football 
games — you no doubt saw some of the sophomore ath- 
letes performing. Pigskin purveyors in Hancock's horde 
were Warner Goddard, Bill Hoffbuhr, Bob Smith, Al 
Trumpy, Hubert Hackett, Jack Lanning, Ray Wesley, and 
football, basketball, and track man Elmer Morgan 

Coach Cogdal pulled out of the basket for the 1939- 
40 cage season, Jim McBride, Larry Kindred, Harv Phelps, 
Del Fagerburg, Herb Roberts, and John "Down-State" 
Scott. Two of Cogdal's other proteges who were con- 
sistent tape-breakers with the cross-country speedsters 
were Captain Marion Cole and John Scott. President Jean 
Ring and Thomas Wright were sophomore stars on the mat 

Dipping into the grab-bag of sophomore satellites we 
found Betty Banker, Norma Boyd, Joanne Clark, Mary 
Jane Eisenmayer, and Virginia Pruden receiving the coveted 
positions of Fell Hall Honor residents; Wilma Bailey, Jack 
Catlin, Harold Classen, and Keith Davidson, Index staff 
members; Lil Bailey, Eleanor Belcher, Dorothy Govas, Lucy 
Heaton, Kathryn Lager, Chris Pacelli, and Roene Stanley, 
prominent in the women's sports activities; Milton Meyers, 
the dynamic little cheerleader; Marion Eberle, Ed Lukow, 
and Carroll Wintersteen, backstage helpers on dramatic 
productions; and Dayle Garrett, the singing sophomore. 

This could of course go on and on and on but after all, 
they have two more years of college life before them, so 
excuse me, please, 'cause I'm goin' down to the Co-op 
for a coke and wait for further developments.

Whew! that first year is finally over! The class of 1943, 
to date known as the Freshman class, materialized under 
the skeptical but watchful eye of a capable Freshman 
Week committee early in September. There they were — 
seven hundred aspirants seeking their own or spending 
someone else's fortune in pursuit of that elusive thing 
called an education. 

Why did these people come to Normal? A report pub- 
lished during the year showed, strange as it seems, that 
most of these uninitiated came down here to become 
teachers. Be that as it may, and regardless of other 
motives behind their choice of vocation, they have already 
learned that there are other things in life known as extra- 
curricular activities. 

To begin with, one Glenn "Swede" Johnson was 
awarded the class presidency by a comfortable margin. 
Also triumphing over opponents at the polls were Marian 
DePew, vice-president, and Betty Bartles, secretary-treas- 
urer. After due elimination, class representation in student 
government was delegated to student council members 
Charlotte Walters, Warren Frink, and Dee Norton. 

Striving to further some democratic governing policies 
in the school, nineteen members of the class were selected 
to serve as a class advisory board. Answering roll call at 
meetings were Bettie Brown, Eileen Cullen, Merle Edmunds, 
Lois Eyer, Betty Farnham, Jim Finley, Jeanne Hamer, Sus- 
anna Hanson, Rusty Harris, Bob Keefe, Reba Lane, Duane 
McGonigle, Barbara Orr, Dave Palowsky, Tom Richardson, 
Mary Sorrenson, Don Stroup, Dorothy Von Ruden, and 
Phyllis Wertsch. Professor Clarence Orr, that genial mem- 
ber of the Social Science Department, who very ably 
served as sponsor, was consulted on personal problems as 
well as on class policies. 

After finally being awarded a date on the calendar, 
these newcomers swung out with a neat clambake and 
taffy-pull, stressing the get-acquainted angle. Then in 
April the class again contributed to the welfare of the stu- 

dent body by throwing an all-school dance, and later in 
the month they had a party for class members only. 

As is always the case when the new crop is surveyed, 
a variety of talents was discovered. The first to stake out 
claims on acting laurels were Roger Norton and Norma 
Anthony, who shared prominent roles in the homecoming 
production "Our Town." Kaufman's "You Can't Take It 
With You," a Jester play given in January, had Duane 
McGonigle and Marian DePew in leading parts. Two other 
freshmen, Duncan Lennon and Don Walton, did 
some plenty rugged debating, making the top divisions 
consistently. Further talent was unearthed when David 
"The Mad Russian" Palowsky and Ray Bessmer performed 
in the Blackfriar production. Bill Benedict, organ virtuoso, 
entertained at the weekly assemblies. 

Expectations were more than fullfilled in athletics. Fu- 
ture key grid men who spent their fall afternoons practic- 
ing punting and passing were Frank Shreiber, Tom Eddy, 
Fred Gehrt, Gentry Barnes, Sam Chicas, and Cecil Hospel- 
horn. Barnes battled his way into a championship berth 
in the local Golden Gloves, and Hospelhorn was one of 
Coach Hill's most valued grapplers. Dale Reid, Dane 
Walker, and Chris Cross saw plenty of service with the 
cage squad and promise to fit into the Cogdal system. The 
I.I.A.C. championship hill and dalers had the services of 
Gene Keltner. Also notable in the field of athletics were 
the Little Squaws, a red-hot cage combination made up of 
freshman net artists, who burned up the intramural basket- 
ball league. 

In addition to becoming acclimated to the rigors of Nor- 
mal college life and doing their share in the activities 
of the school, these freshmen initiated what they hope 
will become a tradition. In response to some gentle hints 
hurled at the class by an editorial in Hubbard's third-floor 
Herald, they successfully backed, brought, built, and 
burned a bonfire, prior to the Weselyan game.

Freshman Week 

Into the Mecca of Education marched the seven hundred 
and fifty. Tests to the left of them, tests to the right of 
them. Home was never like this! What would you have 
done? In fact, what did you do? Just what they did. 

After rushing down to the Co-op and buying a few 
Normal stickers for their rooms, the young hopefuls stop- 
ped in for a coke because someone had told them that it 
was the thing to do. Then they went over to Capen for 
the first class conclave, where they learned who was who 
and what to do when. By this time the neophytes needed 
rest, but instead they found that this was the time to see 
the campus; they walked a few hundred miles — more or 
less — and saw the Normal sights. They then went home 
ready for some sleep, but there was a reception and so 
they couldn't go to bed right away. The next day there 
were tests and the next night there was a party and the 
day after that there were more tests and that night an- 
other party. They began to wonder if this, after all, was 
college. Why hadn't mother told them about things like 

Came registration day and the greenlings arose with the 
sun and traveled again Capenward, where they occupied 
the next three or four hours with singing, etc. They rose 
to stand in long lines to have their programs made out, to 
stand in long lines to have their unrecognizable activity 
card pictures taken, to stand in line to get enrolled in 
classes, to stand in line to get their books. After that even 
the most ambitious freshman boy would not think of de- 
veloping a line. 

At the end of that first hectic week the seven hundred 
and fifty confused and bedazzled freshmen, who had 
entered Fell Gate for the first time that Monday morning, 
metamorphosized into seven hundred and fifty timid tread- 
ers of State Normal's straight and narrow. Little did they 
know the perils of the primrose path.

himself has said, "Gosh, I gotta meeting?" If there is, he's 
not a Normal student 'cause at the last census-taking there 
were over fifty-five organizations that hold meetings on 
our campus. Of course, he couldn't belong to all of these, 
but the university encourages him to participate in as 
many as he can successfully manage. 

First of all the Powers T. B. distinguished between these 
things known as extra-curricular activities and the so- 
called social affairs. Authorities define the first as those 
which take up most of the students' time; social affairs 
as the activities that take up the rest of their time; and 
they stopped before they came to a definition of cur- 
ricular. Lesser authorities have defined curricular as those 
things which occupy the students from eight to four; extra- 
curricular as those which occupy the students from four to 
seven; and social as those which occupy the students from 
seven o'clock on. 

Be all this as it may, in this section we are including 
as extra-curricular activities all those organizations to 
which students devote their leisure time. We have called 

this division Aggregate. You will find all of the organi- 
zations listed alphabetically according to type. 

The first group includes those opportunities for aesthetic 
activity that the curriculum does not provide. This en- 
compasses the fields of art, of the dance, and of music. 
In selecting the organizations that belonged under the 
heading of Agrarian we looked up the meaning of the 
word and found that it would be legitimate and all that 
to include all those that related to the land. The Com- 
mercial division is self-explanatory. Gargantuan was 
named after the giant Gargantua and includes those larger 
or giant-like organizations better known as All-School. 
Next in order are Geographic and Gymnastic. Following 
these is Histrionic or those pertaining to the stage. Then 
comes Humanitarian which when translated reveals that 
these are connected with the social sciences. The Linguistic 
and Pedagogical are followed by the Practical which has 
in it the clubs related to the practical arts. Scientific affairs 
are handled in the Precise division, and the Religious and 
Rhetorical sections need no explanation. 

Here, then, is how Normal students extra-curriculate.

Schroeder coming up; stunt won second 

Well, you see, it was like this. There I am, see, trying 
to hold up the north-east corner of four corners, minding 
my own business when the first thing I know I am lying 
on the floor with eighteen hundred and fifty pairs of well- 
worn shoes plodding over me. I jump to my one remain- 
ing foot and hop after the armored tank that knocked 
me down, and what do I find? A camp stool, a drawing 
board, an easel, and a palette is walking down the hall! 
I look underneath the drawing board and there is an art 
major! So I says, "Look here, don't you know you are a 
menace to life, liberty, and the pursuit of the opposite 
sex?" He answers, "I'll bring it up at the next art club 

So that's how it was. I go to the next meeting and 
find that the man up in front using a paint brush for a 
gavel is August Pagel and his co-pounder is Foster Fletcher. 
I am all ready to bring up my problem but Rose Marie 
Pocock has to read the roll first and Joyce Kinsey has to 

remind the artists that the club could stand a little financial 
help in the way of the payment of dues. After all this the 
president reminds the club that during the past year 
Preston Ensign has demonstrated silk-screen printing and 
Foster Fletcher has shown them dry point etching and the 
club has gone to the Art Institute in Chicago to see the 
Italian Exhibit, so what would they like to do next? Some 
bright fellow says it is time to be thinking of the Merwin 
Medal Exhibit because it would be nice if they could win 
as many prizes as they did last year. Then Miss Goldmann, 
the sponsor, says not to forget the art club's exhibit in 
the spring. 

By this time I am convinced that the art club has many 
more important things on its mind than the mere fact that 
I got pushed, so I quietly slip out the back door as the club 
starts discussing plans for an indoor wiener roast for the 
next meeting — these are no starving artists! As I walk 
home I wonder who ever said that art majors didn't do 



Lives of great men oft remind us we can make our lives 
sublime, and departing leave behind us, footprints! But not 
the ordinary footprints. I should say not the ordinary 
everyday footprints. Rather, the subtle step of an enthu- 
siast of the dance — an Orchesis member to be exact. 

Are you asking what Orchesis is? For shame! Why 
everyone should know that those graceful females you see 
around this campus were not born that way. No! they 
belong to this national dance society. 

Every Monday evening you can find trekking gymward 
in their colorful "flit" costumes these aspirants for perfec- 
tion in the dance. Sandal-clad, they leap and turn and 

glide and sway and swing and slide as the mood bids 

Membership in this organization is open to any girl in 
school. The only requirements are attendance at eight 
practice periods and if after presentation of a solo number 
the applicant is deemed worthy, then she becomes a mem- 

This was the eleventh year on this campus for this or- 
ganization whose members strive for expression through 
the medium of body movement. 

After a semester of practice in the fundamentals of pat- 
terns and rhythms and movements, the girls began to 
work early in the second semester on dance compositions 
which would be suitable for a program. The program that 
they had in mind was the one that they gave when the 
North Central Division of the Athletic Federation for Col- 
lege Women Convention was held here on our campus 
under the auspices of W.A.A. As a testing ground for the 
effectiveness of their compositions, the girls gave three 
dances in the Women's Day Assembly Program. 

Leading these agile artists in their year's work was Miss 
Katherine Thielen. Trained at the University of Wisconsin 
which is famous for its school of dance, Miss Thielen is 
noted for her success in working with dance groups. 

Officers who carried the burden of responsibility for the 
year were Elsie Buser, president, and Ruby Arnin, secre-

Lowell Mason 

Longhairs gather in appreciation 

It was in 1923 that the late professor Frank W. West- 
hoff organized a club to provide a social outlet for all 
students with a teaching field in music. Sixty people who 
are interested in do-re-miing along either vocal or instru- 
mental lines have noted the activities and consequently 
answer the roll at the monthly meetings. When one 
looks over the social functions of the year it is evident 
that the purpose of the club has been carried out in no 
small way. 

Do you remember when people were running about 
last fall with large flowers pinned on them? Well, the 
Lowell Mason Club was responsible because they remem- 
bered the line "Mother, pin a rose on me" and promptly 
adopted something of the sort for their pledges. After 
due humiliation caused by blossoming out in such attire, 
the neophytes were finally initiated on October 12 and 
immediately became active members by working on the 
Homecoming float and tea. Judging by the results, they 
did all right, because their representation, "Confidentially 
Carbondale's Team Sphinx," won second place honors. 
After such a successful morning the club topped the day 
with a tea for their alumni after the game. 

Believing evidently that versatility is the thing, the 
activities of the year were varied. Reverting back to nature 
and the good old days, the club indulged in an old- 
fashioned hay ride that tickled everyone who went. The 
next activity of interest was the meeting when all of the 
members of the club put well-roasted wieners between 
buns and engaged in what is commonly known as a 
wiener-roast to those who know. 

Of a little different spirit but still included in the social 
realm was the dance held by the club. Of still another 
nature was the house-to-house carolling Christmas party. 

While most of us were rubbing cold noses and toeses and 
earses, these people were out spreading the Yuletide spirit 
to residents of Normal. 

With the coming of spring the club hopes to leap into 
the limelight with an assembly program modeled after a 
radio program. Also on the calendar for spring activities 
are the annual outing and the party for all the music 
organizations on campus. The Lowell Mason club is like- 
wise an annual contestant in the stunt show given in May. 

Transposing student wishes into an active program for 
the year was the responsibility of William Lemons, presi- 
dent; Norma Aull, vice-president; Evelyn Sauer, treasurer; 
LaVern Kessinger, secretary; and Miss Margaret Westhoff, 

Construction or destruction?

Onto the football field tramped the marching band! Why? 
Because they, too, had heard that music had charms to soothe 
the savage breast and they were going to try it on the opposition. 
Evidently they tried it with success because at the end of the season 
the crown of the I. I. A. C. belonged to Hancock's boys. 

What is the life of a marching band member? Marching in the 
rain, in the mud, in the snow; riding on long bus trips to DeKalb 
and elsewhere; hours of practice on fall afternoons; watching 
Drum Majors John Cummins and Tom Richardson; and finally the 
thrill that comes with the strains of the Normal Loyalty after a 

PEP BAND . . . 

It used to be that when someone hollered, "The Red-Coats are 
coming," they referred to history. Nowadays, however, when 
someone sounds this cry at basketball games they mean that the 
Pep Band is about to perform. And they did perform — as pep 
band, cheering section, and a bit of everything else. Incidentally, 
did you ever leave a basketball game early? The Pep Band's cry 
of "Stick" was no doubt responsible for those blushes. 

We haven't figured out yet just who the conductor was sup- 
posed to be because every time we looked someone different was 
giving the down-beat. However, we did find out for sure that 
Mr. Leo Dvorak was the sponsor.

Concert Band 

After having had a semester of Music Appreciaton, I 
am very musically inclined and when I hear that the 
Concert Band is going to practice, I say to myself, "That's 
just my meat. I shall trot myself over and see how goes 
things." So I trot over. 

There they are — over one hundred of them. It is amaz- 
ing. After the first number I walk up to Dr. Leo J. Dvorak 
— he is the man who waves that elongated toothpick at 
the instruments. He says that he is very busy right at the 
moment and that I should see John Cummins, the presi- 
dent, if I want to know anything. So I go up to him and 
ask, "What is it that this Concert Band has that I haven't 

Leo J. Dvorak 

got?" This being a hard question to answer, he takes a 
split second and says that it has Evelyn Sauer as secretary 
and LaVerne Kessinger as business manager. 

After this we get very confidential, and he tells me that 
the purpose of the band is to give the members an op- 
portunity to become acquainted with a great amount of 
the best in band literature, both classical and modern. 

Then I ask him what this band has been doing all my 
life, and he says that he can't speak for all that time, but 
during the last year it has played for the Kiwanis Club of 
Bloomington-Normal and the Young Men's Commercial 
Club. And then, of course, there is the annual Spring 
Concert. I am very impressed by this time and don't say 
anything more about performances, especially after I am 
told that band also appeared before two assemblies dur- 
ing the year. I must have skipped those by mistake. 

John runs back for the next number and I sit there 
enthralled. After the number is finished, Mr. Dvorak tells 
them that they have been invited to appear as guest band 
at the School Band Day held at Springfield on Saturday, 
May 4. And then they begin to practice on a number for 
Commencement because they play for Commencement 
exercises every year. 

I begin to think that I know less and less about this 
music business. I watch for my chance and as the drums 
begin a particularly loud roll, I dash out for home to look 
up my old music book. I decide to look further into this 
musical material. Maybe there is more to this band than 
meets the ear. And — believe it or not, I found that truer 
words were never spoken.

University Orchestra 

One night I am sitting at home and decide to tune in 
on station W J B C (commercial) since i have heard that, 
what with being affiliated with Illinois State Normal and 
all, this is a pretty good station. So — I press a button and 
there is someone yodeling, another button and there is a 
campaign speech, still another button and at last — there 
is the program I want! How do I know? I hear Miss Knud- 
son, "Now take that part a little slower. And remember 
that this is a real practice, not a planned concert." Know- 
ing that this is the real thing, I settle back in my chair to 
find out what a great amount of hard drilling it takes to 
work out a musical number satisfactorily. 

The very next day I decide that I can never really be 
happy until I find out more about this University Orchestra, 
which is responsible for these weekly programs. I get out 
my scooter, buzz right over to Old Main, zoom through 
Four Corners and when I come to the sign that says Music 
Office, I throw my old notebook overboard for an anchor 
and stick my head in the door because there is this Miss 
Knudson, who directed the programs. 

I bow and say, "Who can tell me about the University 
Orchestra?" She looks on a paper and tells me that either 
the president, Lyle Neer; the secretary, Emily Crowder; or 
Lyle Young, the business manager, can tell me what I want 
to know. I lose no time and soon I have just lots of in- 
formation on file about this organization. 

It seems that it was once called the String Ensemble; 
now it's called the University Concert Orchestra, and some- 
day perhaps it may be called the I.S.N.U. Symphony 
Orchestra. That's the way this organization has grown 

under Miss Knudson's direction during the past six years. 
Not only has the Concert Orchestra grown in numbers 
(from seventeen to eighty-five musicians), but the quality 
of performance and general musicianship has greatly im- 
proved. The University Orchestra attempts to acquaint stu- 
dents with a variety of musical literature and to act as a 
kind of conducting laboratory for prospective directors. 
The repertoire for this season included some of the classic 
composers, Beethoven, Bach, Tschaikowsky, as well as a 
few of the moderns such as Wood, Hadley, Coates, and 

Having got all this off my chest, I'll scoot away and 
wait for next Tuesday's program.

Ag Council 

Seated — Haynes, Huffman, Dauwalder, Grandt, Rocke, Martin, 
Knepler, Beard, McBride 

Standing — De Wees and Hudelson 

They always used to say that the Ides of March brought 
trouble, but three years ago the wind blew in the other 
direction and the Agriculture Council was formed with the 
idea that it should be a superstructure which would secure 
cooperation between the divisions of the Agriculture De- 
partment and sponsor some activities to encourage further 
agriculture interests in the University. 

When the Ag boys begin tramping back to their old 
stamping grounds (the Agriculture Department) one of the 
big events they're looking forward to is the Red Bird Royal 
Judging Contest sponsored by the Ag Council. This year 
awards were given to Rudolph Harms, Raymond Dau- 
walder, and Francis Hendron in the Livestock Division. Jim 
Henderson, Harland Hoffman, and Francis Hendron were 
the lucky boys to garner ribbons in the Grain Division. As 
it turned out, Francis Hendron took the sweepstakes prize. 
However, this contest is but one of the many things spon- 
sored by the Council. In addition to the Red Bird Royal, 
the Council sponsors an annual stag party (and it does 
mean stag, no drags allowed), a Watermelon Festival, a 

party for the opposite sex of the Home Economics Depart- 
ment, an annual Agriculture Banquet, a flower committee 
that does not send dandelions, and the awarding of the 
Kohler-Reeves trophy to the most outstanding senior of the 
Agriculture Department. 

The election to this elite group is strictly from the agri- 
culture classes so that council members don't have to ex- 
plain to some poor ninny that a balanced ration does not 
necessarily include spinach. This year Don Rocke, Howard 
Haynes, Ray Dauwalder, and Francis Hendron served as 
members from the senior class. The juniors had Ronald 
Martin, Ralph Knepler, and Harold McBride as their rep- 
resentatives. Alten Grandt, Jim Henderson, and Ed Lukow 
served as sophomore members. The freshmen had Claude 
Huffman and Don Beard to represent them. The boys who 
served in the executive capacity were Harold McBride as 
president; Ralph Knepler as vice-president; and Ronald 
Martin as secretary-treasurer. Genial C. W. Hudelson 
served as sponsor for the Council and is in a large degree 
responsible for its progress.

Alpha Tau Alpha 

In 1935, when most sons of the soil were scratching their 
heads trying to find some remedy for the chinch bug in- 
vasion, the Normal sons of Mother Nature were busy 
organizing a chapter of Alpha Tau Alpha, the National 
Agricultural Educational Fraternity. Membership is by in- 
vitation, and academic anemia is one of the surest ways 
to avoid entrance into the sanctum sanctorum agricolorum. 
Twice a year the plebes, clad in their home attire, are seen 
roving the campus. When you see blue denim overalls, 
blue shirts, and a bright red handkerchief on some fellows, 
you will know that the A. T. A. is again exhibiting candi- 

True to the ancient custom of gathering in the harvest 
the boys gathered in the first prize in the annual Hobo 
Parade. The float utilized one of the traditional farm 
props, a surrey, which was disguised to represent I. S. N. U. 
"declaring war" against Carbondale. 

Away back in their high school F. F. A. days fellows 
in Ag began to be interested in judging. Showing that 
he had profited by past experiences was Harland Hoff- 
man, who became the possessor of the Holbert Medal 
through his proficiency in judging hybrid corn. The fra- 
ternity held the annual Holbert Medal Banquet at the 
Christian Church at which time Dr. Ralph R. St. John, hybrid 
seed specialist, spoke on the technical details of hybrid 
corn production. Eugene Funk presented Professor C. W. 
Hudelson with a medal similar to the Holbert award, for 
Mr. Hudelson was instrumental in bringing about the 
annual awarding of the medal by J. R. Holbert. Also 
proving that it pays to be good judges were Rudolph 
Harms, the winner of the sweepstakes in the Red Bird 
Royal judging contest, and Raymond Dauwalder, winner 
of the livestock division of the Red Bird Royal. 

If some spring night you see your fellow students decked 
out as they were back home, don't be worried. No doubt 
they are hurrying to the annual barn dance sponsored by 
the Ag men. "Swing your partner — take your lady and 
circle four — grand right and left — promenade home" is 
the call at this affair when even the faculty people let 
down their back hair and cut a wing or two or four to 
the scrapings of the professional fiddlers engaged for the 

First and second semester officers, respectively, for the 
year were president, Donald Rocke and Dealas Witt; vice- 
president, Raymond Dauwalder and Russell Weger; secre- 
tary, Howard Haynes and Harold McBride; treasurer, 
Charles Harper and Ralph Knepler. Raymond Dauwelder 
edited the Ag Scoop; Donald Rocke was the delegate to 
the annual A.T.A. convention; and T. J. Douglass served 
as advisor. 


There seems to be quite an interest in rural life

Hieronymus Club 

The Hieronymus Club is anonymous to many, but as far 
as we're concerned, it's synonymous with the promotion of 
rural life in education, culture, economics, and recreation. 
What do you need to join? Your average must be high 
enough, your interest must be high enough, you must 
believe in their motto, "Every member a worker," and 
that's not all — you must be voted in. 

Yes, of course, the Hieronymus Club had a Homecoming 
event. The annual Breakfast is the first big event of the 
year for the club. 

Meetings for the year took the form of debates, panel 
discussions, and lectures. A guest speaker was Miss Clara 
Brian, McLean County Home Advisor, who gave an illus- 
trated lecture on "Historic and Scenic Illinois." At one 
meeting a debate was held on the question of the ad- 
vantages of two-year and four-year elementary curriculums. 
Another outstanding meeting was the Christmas party and 
dance held in Cook Hall. All the club members really got 
into the swing of the Christmas season in no small way. 

Paramount on the year's calendar for the Hieronymus 
Club was the State Convention of the Illinois Country Life 
Association. The club as a member of a Collegiate Chapter 
of the American Life Association served as host at the 
meeting held here on our campus last fall. Dr. Rose Parker 
was the faculty chairman of the event and Miss Georgianna 

Leigh acted as student chairman. The five state teachers 
colleges of Illinois sent representatives to the convention. 
Prominent speakers for the conclave included Dr. Worthy 
M. Tippy, Miss Mabel Carney, noted speaker on rural life, 
and Dr. David Lindstrom, assistant professor of rural 
sociology at the University of Illinois. After drawing up 
a new constitution and by-laws for the association, it was 
decided to have a spring meeting at Carbondale and a 
fall meeting at DeKalb. 

Many people who belong to the Hieronymus Club are 
members of Rural Youth Clubs in their home towns, so 
those people who were selected to serve as delegates at 
the Illinois Rural Youth Conference held at Champaign 
thought it was about like Old Home Week. 

In April the Hieronymus Club in conjunction with the 
Rural Curriculum Club sponsored the Teacher-Director Meet- 
ing for McLean County Schools. To wind up the year's 
program is the purpose of the May picnic at Lake Bloom- 

In case after all this you still would like more informa- 
tion about the club, we suggest that you see Ralph Knepler, 
president; Catherine Campbell, vice-president; Naomi 
Kreiger, secretary; Walter Lochbaum, treasurer; Eileen 
Graff, publicity chairman; or Gladys Moore, program chair- 
man. If this fails to suffice, then call on Mr. John Green, 
the sponsor, 'cause he's sure to know! 


Interested in agriculture? 

Maize Grange 

In June, 1930, some sons and daughters of the prairie 
decided that life here on campus would not be complete 
until some organization for people interested in agri- 
culture had been formed. As a result the Maize Grange, 
a local chapter of the National Grange, was authorized 
by the Illinois State Master, E. H. Eckert, and formed under 
the leadership of Professor Clyde Hudelson. 

The purpose of the club is "To bring together all stu- 
dents interested in agriculture for greater social and edu- 
cational advancement." When decoded, this means that 
all of our fellow students who really feel close to the soil 
get together approximately once a month, the calendar 
board willing, and have fun together. After the required 
ritual is performed, then the program for the meeting is 
either of an educational or social nature or both. 

Last fall when the folks back home were busy huskin', 
the Normal agrarians were busy sponsoring the Annual 
Hobo Parade at Homecoming time. Then in December when 
the folks were just idling away the winter months, their 
progeny in Normal were sponsoring the Annual Corn Show 
over in Metcalf. When spring came and those at home 
were thinking about plowing and planting, those here in 
I. S. N. U. were having their annual picnic at Lake Bloom- 

First semester officers were Howard Haynes, master;

The barracks on the 
University Farm 

N.Y.A. Project 

The N.Y.A. agricultural resident training project, the first 
of its kind in Illinois, is located on the grounds of the Uni- 
versity farm. Originally located at 703 N. School Street, 
the school had such an increase of accepted applications 
that the administration moved the school to the present 
location. At the present time there are fifty-five boys en- 
rolled. The purpose of the R.T.S. is to acquaint young men 
between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five with general 
farm administration through a program conducted by the 
Agriculture staff of the University. 

Mr. Joseph Catlin, the school superintendent, serves in 
an administrative and advisory capacity assisted by Mr. 
Charles Huber, the work foreman. The work programs of 
the students are so arranged that each young man works 
four hours a day for five days a week; work is arranged 
to correlate with class schedules. The work consists largely 

of ground work on the campus and chores on the farm. 
The boys receive a monthly work allowance, which en- 
ables them to earn expenses while attending school and 
at the same time receive training in agricultural adminis- 

Mr. Clyde Hudelson and Dr. Stanley Marzolf are in 
charge of the educational program, which consists of 
classes in all phases of agriculture and industrial arts. 
Courses in first aid and typing are also offered. The 
school has a library of over 350 volumes, supplied by the 
state and by Withers Public Library of Bloomington. 

The executive council is chairmanned by John Quinn; 
other members include Edward Fritz, Claude Drazy, James 
Shotton, Donald Hansen, Stanley Polek, Lester Stamper, 
Edward Fogler, Doit Leon Fish, and Raymond Martin.

Reuben, Reuben, I've been thinking what a grand world 
this would be if there were more people like the mem- 
bers of the Rural Curriculum Club! Shucks, almost had a 
rhyme that time! Practice makes perfect or something they 
always say. Anyhow, to come down to earth — the Rural 
Curriculum Club, being rural, promptly went rural by hav- 
ing the first meeting of the year, the initiation, out on the 
farm — the University Farm to be exact. Believing in the 
"eat, drink (but carefully), and be merry, for tomorrow 
you may die" philosophy, they regaled their initiates with 
wieners and chocolate milk in order to strengthen them 
for the ordeal of the welcoming service of upperclassmen 
to underclassmen. 

Came October. Leaves turned, and members of the 
Rural Club turned to Homecoming preparations. As usual, 
the club sponsored a float in the hobo parade, but the 
high spot of the weekend for these people was the annual 
Homecoming Banquet. This affair is doubly important be- 
cause during the course of festivities the Rural Curriculum 
Cup is presented to the most outstanding scholar of the 
group. This rotating cup was originally presented to the 
club by Mr. L. W. Hacker and has been in rotation for 
two years. Isabelle Brown was the proud recipient of the 
award this year; Eleanor Heaton was the previous owner. 

In November the Rural Club joined the Hieronymus Club 
in playing host to the state organization of the American 
Country Life Association. Members of the club considered 
themselves fortunate in hearing as one of the prominent 
speakers of the convention Miss Mabel Carney, Director 
of Rural Education at the Teachers' College of Columbia 

How could Normal students act in a way different from 
normal? It sounds paradoxical enough, but the Rural Cur- 
riculum Club members did this very thing at their December 
party. From refreshments to games, everything was back- 
ward. Finally the members regained normalcy and began 
centering efforts in the assembly program for May. This 
is only the second year that the club has undertaken the 
presentation of a program. 

The rulers of the Rurals are Lloyd Solomon, president; 
Mary Richardson, vice-president; Dwight Knous, secretary; 
John McGinnis, treasurer; Carol Lynn, program chairman; 
Wanda Vogel, pianist; Jean Walker and Irene Anderson, 
reporters; Pauline Palmore and Ruth Akers, freshman cabi- 
net members; and Miss Elinor Flagg, the club sponsor. 
These leaders will hold all the responsibility until the annual 
spring picnic when the new officers will be selected.

Commerce Club 

Miss Peters' experiences must be interesting; not 
one persbn looking at the camera 

The Stunt Show, first place, and they're still 
bragging about it 

Those in the know claim that there are at least five 
reasons for being a Commerce Club member. True to their 
training in drawing up documents they presented the fol- 
lowing reasons to prove this assertion. 

First, it's one of the largest organizations on the campus. 
The initiation of October, 1939, added approximately 
seventy-five new members, bringing the total to about two 
hundred. And not one of these neophytes will forget their 
first meeting — Commerce Club initiations are a tradition 
on the campus. 

Program chairman Bob King gave them their second 
reason — programs that are varied and vital. On the list 
of speakers for the past year were Miss Margaret Peters, 
who spoke on her European experiences; Dr. H. A. Peter- 
son, who talked on the psychology of advertising; and 
Professor Holmes, who showed colored films of his travels 
in the eastern United States and Canada. 

Reason number three, say the club's promoters, is the 
number of prizes won in campus competition. Anne 

Brazelton and her stunt-show committee were responsible 
for the trophy which Miss Day guards. In the Hobo Parade 
the club garnered fourth place and a prize of eight dollars 
through the efforts of Ed Delaney and his committee. 

Activities under social chairman Virginia Dunmire con- 
stitute reason number four. Perhaps the most outstanding 
thing about Commerce Club social get-togethers is the 
abundance and quality of refreshments. When asked what 
makes the annual spring picnic of the club a success, every 
member promptly answers, "The Eats!" so we are left 
without a thing to say. 

Number five — the sponsor, Miss Alta J. Day, and the 
officers. Carl Erwin was the president for this year; Vir- 
ginia Dunmire, vice-president; Helen Moberly, secretary; 
and Ralph Mason, treasurer. 

Requirements for membership are enrollment in the com- 
merce curriculum, some free Tuesday evenings, and a fifty- 
cent piece.

Pi Omega Pi 

Back when business was still busy, the year before the 
little pigs went to market and found the market had 
crashed — in 1928, to be exact — some of the more adept 
hieroglyphic writers and figure jugglers got together to 
bring to Illinois State Normal University the Theta Chapter 
of Pi Omega Pi, National Business Education Honorary 

Time creeps on. Twelve years later we find them still 
having monthly get-togethers in spite of depressions, re- 
cessions, and presidential elections. 

To start both the day and the year off right, Miss Webb, 
the sponsor, asked the members to indulge in a little 
morning manna in the form of a breakfast at her apart- 
ment on September 28. Later on Miss Margaret Peters 
kept the typists on the edge of their seats as she told 
them of her experiences in Africa and India. Came home- 
coming and the leaves began to fall. A few of them were 
gathered to add to the theme of the annual banquet held 
in Roland's Neo-Classic Room (Commercial). Harlan 
Hosier, the toastmaster for the evening, contributed to the 
theme, "Maple Leaf," by leafing home without his speech. 
To make the leaf motif clear even to the most dense, 
Mary Frances Lynch, an alumna, represented the stem; 
Moreen Kelley, an active member, represented the vein; 

and Virginia Dunmire, a pledge, represented the color. 

At each of the monthly meetings president Harlan Hosier 
looked over the group; asked secretary Wilma Buchholz to 
call the roll. She immediately read the names of Kathryn 
Fuller, who is also vice-president; Dorothy Uphoff, who 
takes care of the money; Eileen Stephenson, who has the 
imposing title of historian; Margaret Armstrong, Erma Bar- 
ricklow, Genevieve Atkinson, Edwin Bossingham, Mary 
Jane Browning, Ruby Bruninga, Elaine Bryant, Bernece 
Classen, Margaret Dudley, Virginia Dunmire, Marvin Fet- 
terhoff, Kathryn Garber, Dorothy Henning, Moreen Kelley, 
Myrtle McQuire, William Miller, Dotha Myers, Ralph Price, 
Juliabel Strauch, Winifred Thomassen, and Eugenia Velde. 

Pi Omega Pi members have gone into the journalistic 
field to publish each year the Theta News for active and 
alumni members. The mimeograph machine is kept going 
overtime to put out this forty-page publication of campus 
news, alumni news, and a directory of members. Ye Editor 
for 1940 was Elaine Bryant. 

Spring came, and so did the annual picnic, whereat the 
Pi Omega Pi's, true to their name, consumed quantities 
of pie and all the trimmings. We leave them at the picnic 
as they prove to all the world that even very intelligent 
commerce majors must eat. 




Co-op Council 

First Row — Buchholz, Johnson, Haughey, Hubbard, Ward 
Second Row — Smith, Hosier, Royse, Kelley, Whipple 
Third Row — Fraley, Knepler, Radcliff, Solomon 

Gosh, another year gone by — and a greater year than 
ever for the Co-op Council. 

Remember that advertising and salesmanship used back 
in September to show the freshmen what they would miss 
if they didn't subscribe? But they did subscribe. And how! 
The sales were higher than ever before, and we'll all agree 
it was worth the effort. 

It isn't hard to remember the danceable rhythms of 
Happy Felton and that "crazy" floor show. Yes, we all 

thought that it was poor judgment to start off the year 
with such a swell party — look what the Co-op Council 
would be expected to live up to. 

But we were wrong. Ted Fio Rito and his famous band 
thrilled the audience at our second Co-op Party. Later Art 
Kassel and his "Kassels in the Air" furnished us with his 
famous sweet rhythm. Just the proper setting — Say! 
Didn't you meet that blond at that party? Boyd Raeburn 
dropped his engagement in Chicago long enough to play 
for our fourth party and made it a real success. 

Mr. Fogler, the sponsor, Harlan Hosier, chairman, and 
the rest of Council are giving us not four — but six — great 
parties during the year. If you had wanted to see a penny 
split three ways, you should have listened to the pow-wows 
when the year's budget was determined. The month of 
April found Normalites enjoying Jack McLean and his 
famous dance band direct from the Trianon Ballroom in 
Chicago — party number five. And — sh-h — the Co-op 
council is keeping a sixth party this year as a surprise for 
the students — let's call it a dividend for the swell cooper- 
ation throughout the year. We have to go to press so we 
can't wait to be there. 

The leaders of the Co-op Council, Harlan Hosier, Mo- 
reen Kelley, Wilma Buchholz, Graham Whipple, Glenn 
Johnson, Martha Royse, Kenneth Haughey, James Thorson, 
Betty Ann Smith, John Scott, and Harold Hubbard, have a 
few more gray hairs, but they believe it was worth it.

League of Women Voters 

Should you amble up to M209 some Tuesday after four 
o'clock when solitude once more replaces bedlam, you 
might find this group of fervent females feverishly ponder- 
ing upon the weighty questions of politics. Yes, these 
girls are trying to find out how the wheels of government 
go 'round and why. 

Way back in '28, the College League of Women Voters 
was organized, growing out of a committee of Women's 
League. Its austere purpose was the promotion of an 
"active and intelligent citizenry." The association is affili- 
ated with the national and state organizations and is one 
of the few college leagues in existence. The activities are 
carried on through six departments, the chairman of each 
department being responsible for one meeting a semester 
dealing with problems pertinent to her particular division. 
This year's chairmen were Government and Foreign Policy, 
Lorraine Hatscher; Government and Child Welfare, Louise 
Matthews; Government and Economic Welfare, Eloise Cav- 
anagh; Government and Education, Gertrude Stephan; 
Government and its Operation, Virginia Glasener; and 
Government and the Legal Status of Women, Sophio Jacko. 
Interesting programs in the form of informal talks by mem- 
bers of the faculty, representatives of affiliated organiza- 
tions, and welfare workers, and panel discussions resulted. 

A variety of other activities are also a part of the club's 

calendar of events. The all-women's tea in September, a 
visit to the McLean County Court to observe a trial, helping 
the student elections to run smoothly, and sending dele- 
gates to the Illinois League of Women Voters' Convention 
are some of the outstanding events of the year. A new 
event destined to become an annual affair was the "Citizen- 
ship Recognition Day" for those who have reached the age 
of twenty-one this year. Lest you might think that they 
spend no light and frivolous hours, let us mention the 
Homecoming coffee and the Christmas party. Both of these 
events were held at the home of Dr. Waldron, who was 
for several years sponsor of the group. During the school 
year 1939-40, Dr. Anna L. Keaton guided the group as 
faculty sponsor. 

If there is anything you would like to know about any 
of the topics listed above in the divisions of the activities, 
here are all of the leaders of the organization for you to 
refer to: president, Marjorie Bane, who resigned after the 
first semester and was succeeded by Naomi England, for- 
merly vice-president; secretary, Nordine Irish; and social 
chairman and historian, Susanne Staff. 

At present the League has no quotation on the probable 
outcome of the coming election — but give them time and 
they'll predict something!

The Normal Christmas spirits 

Second to one when it comes to size, is the University 
Club, descendant of the Varsity Club of the bygone days. 
Sole surpasser of the sterner sex when it comes to scope 
is the organization on our campus for the ladies. And this, 
of course, is due to the abnormality of the Normal ratio 
(any Normal girl can tell you about this). However, this 
all-men's organization held its own in this year's fight 
for favor, for loyal and active old members aided Harold 
Hanner in inveigling 140 new members down to the gym 
and last year's be-labored 125 were able to do a little 
badgering of their own. You males may check on your 
eligibility by noting the following quoting of our in- 
formant on the organization — "Membership in this active 
group is open to all men of the school who desire the 
finest in social life and want to promote fellowship and 
unity in our student body." 

Starting the staggering series of social events, we have 
the doughnut-dotted and cider-sweetened strictly stag 
affair in the gym on September 27. This opening gun of 
the U Club social series is definite proof of the altruistic 
tendencies of the gigantic group. Would you believe it? 
The cider and doughnut debauch was open to all the 
hungry hawks in school and anyone knows that that means 
a lot of cider and doughnuts. To offset any possible ill 
effects of the cider there were the songs of the Marching 
Band, the talks of Dean Schroeder and President Fair- 
child, not to mention the copious comments of members 
of our coaching staff. All in all, this get-together-get- 
acquainted gathering made quite an impression on the 
newcomers to our campus. 

The evening of October 14 more than compensated the 
pledges for the paddling and persecution just prior to this 
date. We're commenting, of course, on the first-semester 
pledge dance in Fell Hall, where members, old and new, 
meandered in a merry melee to melodies by Messer. It's 
debatable whether or not this affair is a manifestation of 
a guilty conscience or prompted by the wholehearted de- 
sire of the old members to show the new ones a good 
time. An atonement measure for the second-semester sur- 

vivors of the paddling was the Valentine Ball, with Red 
Maxfield keeping the ball rolling. The usual U Club- 
sponsored strictly formal dance was skipped over this year 
(accompanied with prayers of thanksgiving by those read- 
ers and believers of the Freshman Handbook), and we 
come to the Club's climax of another successful social 
season — the annual dinner dance at Lakeside Country Club. 
Returning to the altruistic, we find the University Club 
sponsoring all-school activities on a mass-production level 
rivaling that of Henry Ford's. Probably the most noted 
of the University Club's contributions to campus activities 
is the annual Christmas Service staged in Capen. This year 
students attending the Sunday service found the auditorium 
bedecked in its usual Christmas splendor. This beautiful 
June-December day (unquote the Reverend Dr. Holland), 
frosted windows, fragrant evergreens, soft lights of the 
deep blue variety, and a packed house furnished a perfect 
setting for the Christmas message by the Reverend Dr. 
John Wesley Holland of the "Little Brown Church of the 
Air" of station WLS. An integral part of the program was 


Flip for it 


the singing of portions of Handel's "Messiah" and several 
carols by the combined Women's Choruses and the Men's 
Glee Clubs. 

Numbered among the noted events of the University 
year, we have the U Club-sponsored annual Stunt Show. 
For the benefit of the uninformed and uninitiated, we wish 
to state in no uncertain terms that this is one of the best 
when it comes to shows. The U Club promotes the event 
and gets numerous organizations to present short skits of 
stunts in competition for a prize. Not in the running for 
the prize money, but nevertheless one of the top stunts 
of the evening is the faculty's. Amazing no end is this 
opportunity to see faculty members with their hair down 
and equally astounding is the "once-dormant-now-come- 
to-life" dramatic abilities some of them possess. Another 
feature of the U Club campus activities — and outshown 
only by the annual Christmas Service — was the annual 
Mother's Day Service held in Capen; the service was fol- 
lowed by a reception at Smith Hall. 

Thanks are inadequate in praising the fine work of the 
club's officers and the various and many committees work- 
ing under the sponsorship of Dean R. H. Linkins to make 
these events possible throughout the year. 

Of course, administration of such a large organization 
sponsoring so many varied activities requires many com- 
mittees and sub-committees, officers and assistant officers, 
chairmen and assistant chairmen, and the like. The U 
Club has combined their major members in a group which 
they call the executive council, since it is their duty to 
direct and carry out all the numerous plans for the activities 
for the club. The council included Frank Ward, Jr., presi- 
dent; Dean Davis, vice-president; Loren Lee Little, secre- 
tary; and Harlan Hosier, treasurer. Speaking of chairmen, 
we have Elston Roady, the Christmas Service chairman; 
John Coughlin, the Mother's Day chairman; Shields Logs- 
don, the Stunt Show chairman; Harold Hanner, the Mem- 
bership chairman; Melvin Holtz, the Program chairman; 
Guy Quick, the Stag Party chairman; and Tom Stombaugh, 
the Social chairman. The list would not, however, be com- 
plete without including Milton Holtz, the Smith Hall presi- 
dent; and Dean R. H. Linkins, sponsor of the club.

More tea for the tea-totalers 

Well, Mable, it really wasn't my fault. I saw that sign 
at Four Corners that said Central Board would meet on 
Wednesday night and I thought it had something to do 
with that loose board in the middle of the hall that I am 
always stumbling over, so I went. Well, how was I to 
know that Central Board was all the presidents of districts 
and presidents of organized houses of over ten girls. I 
am after all only a simple sort. Mother never told me 
things like that. 

But really, Mable, I am glad I went. I surely did learn 
more stuff and things. Did you know that Women's League 
was formed way back in the days of flappers and short 
skirts? Fourteen years ago! I guess the women decided 
that if they were going to predominate in numbers — that 
means the ratio — they had better organize. 

I didn't know that they were so well organized. Why, 

there is the Executive Board besides the Central Board. 
Moreen Kelley is president and Lola Johnson is vice-presi- 
dent. Jean Merrell writes the minutes and Dorothy Shea 
takes care of the money. And then there are all sorts 
ov chairmen — or would you call them chairwomen — on 
the Executive Board. There is Geraldine Armstrong, who 
is Finance chairman; Mary Jane Stannard, Publicity; Rhoda 
Van Huss, Records; Margaret Parret, Program; Martha 
Royse, W.A.A. president; Marjorie Bane, Y.W.C.A. presi- 
dent; Elaine Bryant, Fellowship chairman; Jeanette Eymann, 
Forum chairman; Ellen Sorrenson, Social chairman; and 
Genevieve Atkinson, chairmen of the counseling system. 
Just chairwoman after chairwoman. Isn't it wonderful? 

After I learned all that, I began to think that I was 
missing something by not knowing more about this thing 
called Women's League. I got out my ski suit (after all, 


this March weather is something to be sneezed at), slid 
over to Dean Barton's office, and got the low down on this 
all-women's organization. 

And, Mable, you know those girls we have been notic- 
ing in assembly — the ones with those luscious white scarves 
with red letters on them? Well, I found out who they are. 
They are Honor Council girls! And I guess it really is an 
honor to be chosen because the choosing committee is com- 
posed of Dean Barton, Miss Brenneman, the president- 
elect of Women's League, and the president and presi- 
dent-elect of Honor Council. This year those honored girls 
who got those scarves given to them absolutely free were 
Elaine Bryant, Fellowship chairman of Women's League 
and thereby president of Honor Council; Moreen Kelley, 
Betty Wolfe, Alice Bennett, Eleanor McCrory, Faye Barton, 
Helen Smargiassi, Wilma Buchholz, Mable Allen, Betty 
Stuckey, Frances Taylor, and Emma Lou Musgrove. 

I hadn't realized that Women's League sponsored so 
many things until I got to talking things over with Dean 
Barton. She imparted to my eager ears the fact that the 
biggest thing accomplished during the year was the 
counseling system. This little device takes care of all the 
bunny-like and bewildered freshmen girls, by putting them 
under the wing of some capable upper-classmen, who can 
show them some of the more obvious ropes before they 
get roped in. 

Besides this, they have given all sorts of teas and things. 
In fact, I think they're a bunch of tea-totalers! First there 
was the Campus Sister Tea at Fell Hall on Sunday, October 
8. And then there was the Get Acquainted Dinner at the 
Presbyterian Church on November 1, where Dean Barton 
awakened the girls' wanderlust by telling them of her 
experiences in Europe during the summer. 

You know that lecture and discussion on Marriage, where 
we heard Mrs. Overton? Well, that was sponsored by 
Women's League, too. They really do get around. But 

they certainly did do something on December 6, when 
the very first issue of The Coed came out. This newspaper 
is written by the women, for the women, and of the women. 
The League was especially active during the Christmas 
season. Dean Barton had her annual Christmas tree in 
her office and the girls brought gifts for the needy. It 
was a huge success this year. So many gifts arrived that 
it took a truck to carry them all to the relief office. Of 
course Women's League again sponsored the noon pro- 
grams during the week before Christmas. That is why we 
saw all of those people bolting their food and rushing 
out of the Co-op. They wanted to get seats for the pro- 
grams. As a send-off for departing damsels, the Christmas 
Tea was given on December 20. 

The two main social events of the year were Women's 
League's two formal dances. January 13 may have been 
unlucky in some places, but at I. S. N. U. it was a horse- 
shoe of a day — or shall we say night. All the men got 
the breaks, for the girls asked them to the Women's League 
Semi-Formal Winter Ball. All the lovely ladies emerged in 
their new Christmas formals and shuffled their feet to the 
rhythm of Hank Messer's orchestra. 

Comes spring and another Women's League Formal — 
the Spring Formal, to be exact — will open its doors and 
more girls will lose more pounds dancing more steps. 

For a change from tea, tea, and more tea, the Honor 
Council revolutionized the tea business by giving a Valen- 
tine Ko-Ko. 

Now the League is making plans for entertaining the 
Illinois Association of Women's Leagues who will hold 
their convention here next year. Lola Johnson was elected 
president at this year's convention. 

So, Mable, you can see that after all, the representa- 
tives of the fairer sex at I. S. N. U. do not spend all of 
their time chasing the elusive male. They have other 
things on their minds. 

What, no extreme lines? 

Don't count your chickens before they're danced with, Mr. Ivens

Gamma Theta Upsilon 

Opperman, Lathrop, Scott, Davis, Keeney 

I didn't think four people could be in different 
places at the same time 

Back in the good old days before the map of the world 
changed every day and oftener, there existed on this 
campus an organization known as the Geography Club. 
When 1929 came, those students who were fortunate 
enough to remain in school despite the depression and 
page 39, decided that in union there is strength — or some 
such thing — and formed the local honorary fraternity, 
Gamma Theta Upsilon, planning to expand it later into a 
national organization. The constitution which was drawn 
up for the Alpha chapter is now being considered as the 
constitution of the National Professional Honorary Geogra- 
phy Fraternity. This possibility was discussed at the national 
convention held at the University of Chicago attended by 
members of the faculty and two student delegates, Betty 
Jane Hull and John Scott. 

Mapping out the year's activities was the primary duty 
of sponsor Dr. H. O. Lathrop and officers John Scott, presi- 
dent; Dean Davis, vice-president; Connie Opperman, secre- 

tary,- and Grace Keeney, treasurer. From the maze of their 
mapping materialized the year's programs. 

Vicarious travel experiences were provided by Mrs. Or- 
ville Yarger, who told of her adventures "Cycling Through 
Europe," by Miss Gueffroy's disclosing the "Geographic 
Aspects of a Doll Collection," and by Miss Crompton, who, 
at the Homecoming banquet, gave an illustrated lecture on 
her "Reconnaisance Trip Through Western Europe." 

Other programs included a panel discussion by faculty 
members on "Departments of Geography and Opportuni- 
ties for Graduate Work," a student program, "Geography 
of My Home Town," the initiation meeting; and, of course, 
the annual steak fry at Lake Bloomington. 

To Sylvia Green and Florence Ventler goes the credit 
for assuring the alumni that, despite shifting scenes at home 
and abroad, the club still exists and is carrying on for the 
honor and glory of something or other. These two edited 
the semi-annual G. T. U. News Letter, which is sent to every 
member of the club. 


It went that way 

Nature Study Club 

Nature in the spring; nature in the fall; nature in the 
raw; just nature! What are we talking about? Well, it's 
this way — one day we were out on campus just idlin' along 
when all of a sudden a whole horde of people came rush- 
ing by. The leader stopped, caught his breath, and asked, 
"Did you see a butterfly go by here?" Being in the mood, 
we replied, "He just went that way." And what does this 
person do but cast his butterfly net over his shoulder and 
tear away? We figured and figured, and then came the 
dawn — this must be the Nature Study Club out on an 

So being of a thorough-going nature we spread our 
nets around and caught a little information on this club. 
The only requirement for admission is a genuine interest 
in the natural sciences. If you have such inclinations and 
the necessary cash then you too could get in on programs 
such as Dr. Blanche McAvoy's lecture, "Prairies of Illinois," 
or Mr. Frank Aldrich's "Studying Nature." You might even 
get to hear such talks as Dr. E. J. Young's "Disease Control 
of Common Flowering Plants," or Professor Neva Mc- 
Davitt's lecture on "Stars," which sounds pretty good to 
us, or "Locating Oil in Illinois" by Professor Leslie A. 
Holmes, or the "State Parks" lecture and technicolor films 
of Miss Frances Krimmel, Publicity Director of the Division 
of Parks at Springfield. Anyhow, that's the nature of the 
nature-lovers' programs this year. 

By further investigation in a purely unscientific manner 
we discovered that this club has a twofold purpose. It not 
only attempts to foster a more vital interest in nature; it 
also promotes a social program. At the informal initiation 
this second objective is stressed. 

When spring comes tra la all the little hearts of the 
club members beat a little faster because there are two 
things to look forward to. One of these is the early morn- 
ing breakfast and the ensuing bird trip. In spite of sleepi- 
ness there is something about fresh morning air that is so 
bracing — I guess. Each year the group takes a trip to 
some spot in Illinois and last year they visited the Plane- 
tarium, Shed Acquarium, and Field Museum in Chicago. 

The officers were Ellsworth Donovan, president; Connie 
Opperman, vice-president; Helen Foley, secretary-treasurer; 
Sylvia Green and Ruth Daily, program; and Dr. Miller, 

Is Nature so wonderful? 



Gamma Phi 

You have heard, maybe, in the days of your youth, of 
the man who flies through the air with the greatest of ease 
— well, this was no fairy tale because we actually have 
been investigating and have' seen people right here on 
campus doing this very thing and a little bit more. Lower 
that incredulous left eyebrow, 'cause we have the proof. 

Seems that about twelve years ago one Professor Horton, 
"Pop" to his kids, had a brain storm and organized 
Gamma Phi, the physical education fraternity. A training 
ground for all those who wish to learn about teaching 
gymnastics, the club is the annual sponsor of a Gamma Phi 
Circus. This is where we were when we found out that this 
was no tall story about the man on the flying trapeze. 
Finding no other way to get information, we hopped on a 
bar and went along for the ride and also got this story. 
This year's activities were intrusted to Jimmy Thorson, pres- 
dent; Walter Switzer, vice-president; and Telvin Tuggle, 
secretary-treasurer. Mid-year graduation took President 
Thorson from the ranks, but before leaving he appointed 
ace apparatus man, Jesse Parsons, to be Circus Director, 
and Charles Thomas, of juggling fame, as Business Man- 
ager. Vice-president Walter Switzer succeeded as presi- 
dent. After due elimination at the polls, Queen Betty Lou 
Cox was selected to rule over festivities with attendants 
Betty Ann Smith, Eleanor Dalton, Jean Strange, Mary 
Turnbull, and Kay Hinman.

N Club 

Is the chair for the little man who 
wasn't there? 

"Hey, Small Fry, Come over here." 

"Yes sir?" 

"Listen, Shorty, I'm giving this place the once-over, and 
if I like it, I might come to school here next year. I'm 
graduating from Muldroon Township High School next 
month, and I'm the class of that school when it comes to 
athletics. Now gimme the low-down on who the big-shots 
are around here and what kinda clubs a guy like me 
oughta get into. Say, who's them two guys walking down 
this away with the peach red sweaters on?" 

"Oh, those fellows are Jim Hardgrove and Loren Little. 
Hardgrove replaced Jack Secord as N Club president at 
mid-year, and Little is the secretary-treasurer." 

"What-in-the-aitch is the N Club?" 

"I thought everybody knew that. The N Club is an 
organization composed of university men who have won 
athletic letters. Eugene Hill, varsity wrestling and tennis 
coach, is its sponsor." 

"Wow! Who is that smooth-looking guinea ankling 
down the walk now?" 

"That's Dolly Vance, the N Club's homecoming queen." 
"Don't this club do nothing but sponsor queens?" 
"Of course they do, silly. Their purpose is to promote 
athletics and better all-around sportsmanship." 
"Do they have any dances or stuff like that?" 
"They most certainly do. They sponsored a Normal- 
Wesleyan Goodwill dance with Al Kavelin's orchestra and 
only this week they are having their spring formal at 
Maplewood Country Club." 
"Geeminy, guess I'll join." 

"You'll join if you earn a letter and not before, and 
even then the rough-house initiation you'll receive will 
necessitate eating your meals from the mantle-piece for 
days after. When an obese 200 pound fullback applies 
with gusto a thick plank to your posterior, you'll feel 
differently. N Club pins are the goal of most of the 
women in school." 

"Boy, I certainly hope I get in." 

"Well, so long, Harry High School. I have a class. 
Maybe I'll see you next year — that is, if I can tell you 
apart from the rest of the frosh."

W. A. A. 

Smargiassi, Van Raemdonk, Nicholas, Hume, 
Royse, Wolfe, Brooks, Starkey 

Look at those tall girls in the back row 

A campfire . . . girls' voices raised in song . . . marsh- 
mallows . . . mosquito bites . . . cries of "Sanitation Com- 
mittee!" . . . it's a W. A. A. camping trip to Lake Bloom- 
ington. Spending the week-ends out in the wide-open 
spaces close to Mother Nature's breast is only one of the 
many activities sponsored by the Women's Athletic Asso- 
ciation. These athletically inclined females are respon- 
sible for such un-athletic doings as teas, dances, and even 
a national convention. Yes, these gals do get around. 
Those peachy hobby nights where everyone caught up on 
his target shooting and ping pong, etc., far, far into the 
night — well, anyway, until ten thirty — were also guided 
by these girls from the other side of the gym. 

From whence cometh this organization? Well, climb 
upon my one good knee, my children, and you shall hear 
how twenty years ago a very exclusive group got to- 
gether, and W. A. A. was the result. At that early date, 
members were admitted into the organization on a point 
system. Came the depression and a few other things, and 
in 1934 this plan was revised so that now any girl in school 
may become a member. 

With every other organization holding conventions on 
the campus this year, W. A. A. was not to be outdone. 

The group was hostess to the representatives of nine states 
of the North Central District of the Athletic Federation 
for College Women. Pauline Van Raemdonk was the gen- 
eral chairman of the affair and emerged with ten gray 
hairs and five new wrinkles; and Martha Royse, the local 
president, and Ruth Brooks served as president and record- 
ing secretary at the convention. 

The diving board — pardon me — the executive board 
consisted of Martha Royse, president; Evelyn Starkey, vice- 
president; Ruth Brooks, secretary; Betty Wolfe, correspond- 
ing secretary; Edith Nicholas, treasurer; Pauline Van Raem- 
donk, social chairman; and Helen Smargiassi, intramural 
chairman. The rest of the board consisted of the sports 
heads of the various intramural activities. A new addition 
to the board was the position of lounge chairman, which 
was filled — the position, not the lounge — by Christine 
Pacelli. Rumor has it that there is to be an alumni secre- 
tary, but as yet no one has been chosen to fill this place. 

Leaving Miss Esther Hume and Miss Margaret Barto, 
guiding lights of W. A. A., we dodge flying tennis balls, 
trip over a blanket roll ready for a camping trip, and exit 
from the gym having decided to join W. A. A. next year. 


Women's Physical Education Club 

When in the course of human events it became neces- 
sary for the people of the physical education department 
to have a club of some kind, Miss Lydia Clark, then head 
of the department, was right there. And she did not hesi- 
tate. She went right ahead and organized the Women's 
Physical Education Club for the purpose of developing the 
curriculum and increasing interest in the activities — which 
are slightly more on the vigorous side than tatting or 
bridge. Ever since the club thus started back in 1923, it 
has emphasized professional development rather than 
social activity; therefore, the programs have covered a 
range of interests. After leaving I.S.N.U., Founder Clark 
has gone a long way in her physical education work and 
now is rated as one of the foremost authorities in her 
field. The club has not been idle either. Originally limited 
in membership to those women enrolled in the two-year 
curriculum of that period, the department in 1931 was en- 
larged into a four-year curriculum, with the result that all 
majors and minors enrolled in physical education were 
eligible for membership. 

Monthly meetings are held either in the W.A.A. room 
or in the Women's Gymnasium. This year the meetings 
were in charge of a different class each month and there- 
fore the conclaves really had variety. At one of the gath- 
erings Miss Dulian, a physiotherapist from Bloomington, 

talked on the types of exercises for infantile paralysis and 
demonstrated with one of her paralytic patients. This 
meeting was especially interesting to those people who 
had had Miss Frey's specialty, the Anatomy and Physi- 
ology course. All of the club members are exposed at one 
time or another to this class since it is one of the required 
subjects in this field. But to get back to the business of 
meetings of the Physical Education Club for this year — 
this process of association leads one astray so. 

Another outstanding meeting of the year was Miss Dor- 
othea Coleman's lecture on the problems to be met in 
teaching physical education. She was fully qualified to 
speak on the topic because she is a critic teacher in physi- 
cal education at Normal Central School. All those people 
who are enduring the trials and tribulations of student 
teaching listened intently. 

There are two social activities that the club sponsors 
each year. One of these is the bob-sled party, which was 
followed this year by refreshments of hamburgers and 
cocoa. The other is the farewell breakfast given the 

Officers of the club for the year were Martha "Marty" 
Humphrey, president, and Elsie Buser, secretary-treasurer. 
Miss Frey mentioned above was the sponsor. 

Humphrey, Frey, Buser 




It's still a madhouse but no longer midnight — our black- 
listed, black-balled, ebony abbots have turned over a new 
leaf in an effort to get back In the good graces of the 
powers T. B. Rehearsals for this year's effort to get out of 
the red were a relief to red-rimmed eyes; they always be- 
gan before midnight. Number six of the Blackfriar S.R.O.'s 
to stagger Capen-comers ranks right up with "My Old 
Man," "S' Funny Thing," "Music Mad," "Insomania," and 
"We Want Men." Honors — if any — for "Stage Window" 
go to the Hayes-Berry combine. 

The boys got off to a good start this year and that might 
account for the organization and reasonable hours in- 
volved. Real early in the year (but quite late at night), 
they got together in the little office just off Climb's Stair 
and elected Hayes, abbot; Cameron, prior; Berry, purser; 
Neer, scribe; and Lemons, steward. Two pledge groups 
this year survived the particularly plutonic Hell Week, the 
nformal, and then were drafted into the show. After quite 
a struggle with the senior class, the friars lost their chosen 
sponsor, Dr. Gooding, and selected Mr. Sherrard to guide 
their destinies. 

Lovely. Musical. Lovely? Musical? 



What's behind the door — Miss Yates? 

Cast on stage — ! Stage clear — ! Curtain — ! 

This is the cry that rings out backstage while the audience 
on the other side of the curtain settles down to enjoy 
another Jester production. 

Paraded before University Theatre audiences this year 
was Kaufman and Hart's "You Can't Take It With You," 
in which a startling array of turtles, snakes, xylophones, 
printing sets, and all the things which are the bane of a 
props committee's life, were used. Who will forget the 
homely philosophy of Grandpa Vanderhof, the shy con- 
ceit of Mr. De Pinna, and delightful Penny — artist — writer 
— love-affair bungler — ? 

Anyway if you've never felt the thrill of being even a 
small cog in the University Theatre wheel, you should try 
it. Hours and hours of lost sleep are all but forgotten when 
the cast and crews clasp hands to repeat the "One for all 
and all for one." 

After examining the scribbling on the flats — almost like 
writing on the wall — we found out that Jesters was founded 
on this campus by Miss Mildred Felmley in 1913. Since 
then funds from Jester plays have been used to purchase 

stage equipment, settings, and to maintain properties for 
the use of all organizations. 

People who belong to Jesters must eat, sleep, and live 
dramatics. Neophytes of the organization found this out 
before they were allowed to become members. Several 
meetings were devoted to initiations — but, of course, you 
remember when some of these youngsters were running 
around with a brush around their necks, a bulge in their 
pockets, and that scared-to-take-a-breath look on their 
faces. If you didn't notice any of these things, did you 
see some of the fellows bending into that superlatively 
awkward position at Four Corners? They weren't looking 
for lost collar buttons, either. 

Other memorable highlights of the year were the 
Christmas party at sponsor Miss Ruth V. Yates's house and 
the trip to Chicago to see Maurice Evans in "Hamlet." 

Officers of the year, Wilma Austin, president; Evalyne 
Ammons, secretary; Eugene Sutter, treasurer; and Geraldine 
Martin, historian, close with the sentiments of the whole 
group (with apologies to Buick ) : "When better plays are 
made, Jesters will make them." 


Theta Alpha Phi 

"Romeo, Wherefore art thou, Romeo?" "To be or not 
to be, that is the question." Ah, drama! Don't be alarmed. 
It is just the grease paint in my blood coming out for its 
annual spring airing. And speaking of grease paint re- 
minds me of the Illinois Delta Chapter of Theta Alpha Phi, 
which had one of its more active years during 1939 and 
1940, what with the national convention and everything. 

Amid the falling leaves and returning upperclassmen, 
Theta Alpha Phi met and elected John Keltner to head the 
emoters. Because of ill health John was forced to hand 
the gavel over to the vice-president, Margaret Parret, at 
the end of the first semester. Bill Staker kept the script of 
meetings up to date. 

Theta Alpha Phi first blossomed out into public life for 
this year on homecoming weekend. They added their bit to 
the reception held after the homecoming play, and Miss 
Mable Clare Allen, the sponsor, spread a breakfast feast 
for the active members and starving alumni. This eating 
business seemed to be very popular with the actors, for all 
of the fall get-togethers were in the form of dinner meet- 
ings. Not only did they feed their bodies; they also nour- 
ished their minds, for various phases of the theatre were 
discussed and reviews of current plays were made by Miss 
Yates and Miss Allen. 

Of course the big heart throb of the organization came 

on April 26-28, when Normal and Wesleyan were hosts 
to over two hundred delegates from other Thespian groups 
throughout the United States. Renowned speakers and 
drama enthusiasts aided the convention programs, while 
Normal's chapter made its contribution with the presenta- 
tion of Family Portrait, Lenore Coffee and William Joyce 
Cowen's play depicting the family of Christ. 

Eight neophytes of Normal were initiated into the local 
fraternity and got the thrill of their lives by being wel- 
comed into membership by a national delegation. After 
these lucky eight had been duly put through their paces 
and had passed inspection, the roll of the Normal chapter 
of Theta Alpha Phi reached the total of some twenty 
actives, who had hurdled the barriers to local dramatic 

The curtain goes down on "Theta Alpha Phi 1939-40," 
the house lights come on, and another production is over 
at the little theater off Columbus Circle. Backstage, the 
cast members gather private properties, wipe off the 
grease-paint, hang up their wigs, squirm out of costume, 
receive congratulations on the performance, and hurry 
home to get some sleep. Meanwhile we get on our bicycle 
and wend our way through the busy thoroughfares of Nor- 
mal, with the memory of an excellent production in our

Pi Gamma Mu 

The cream of the Social Science cro 

2100 B. C, 400 B. C, and 1492 A. D. are dates 
that Pi Gamma Mu members usually concentrate on, but 
they find the dates 1924 A. D., and 1929 A. D., equally 
important. December 1, 1924, brought the establishment 
of the charter chapters of this honorary social science fra- 
ternity under the direction of Dr. Leroy Allen, now the 
executive secretary. With that socially significant year of 
1929 came the movement for a group of this kind on our 
campus, which resulted in the formation of the Illinois 
Theta Chapter of Pi Gamma Mu here in 1930. 

Each year the local chapter takes a survey of present 
conditions, and students of junior standing who have com- 
pleted at least twenty semester hours of social sciences 
with a B average are notified that they have passed the 
acid test and after attending to a few details such as dues 
and initiation may become members. 

Pi Gamma Mu differs from other honorary societies on 
this campus in that it is a graduate as well as an under- 
graduate society. To every member goes a copy of Social 

Radcliflf, Browne, Brunk, Ward, Postlewait, Beery 

Science, the official journal of the organization. This 
quarterly magazine promotes the ideal of the society, social 
service through the study of all social problems, by pub- 
lishing articles and reviews by recognized authorties in 
the various fields of the social sciences. 

While powers at home and abroad were worrying over 
third terms, no terms, armament terms, and treaty terms, 
local powers were holding down terms of office. Doing 
their duty along this line were James Ward, president; 
Ruth Beery, vice-president; Jack Radcliff, recording secre- 
tary; Frances Postlewait, treasurer; Mrs. Dorothy G. Brunk, 
corresponding secretary; and Dr. Richard Browne, sponsor. 

Planks in the platform for this year included the joint 
Homecoming banquet with Pi Kappa Delta when Professor 
Charles A. Harper spoke; the meeting with the Social 
Science Club of the University and the Pi Gamma Mu 
chapter of Wesleyan with Dr. Gould Wickey as speaker; 
the traditional Christmas party at the home of sponsor Dr. 
Browne; the initiation meetings; and the annual spring 
picnic held at Lake Bloomington. 


After the initiation came information 
which seems to be holding their interest 

Cross-creek Pi Gamma Muers guests at

Social Science Club 

Let us turn back the pages of time and peer into the 
recorded past of the Social Science Club. In comparing its 
age with other clubs, it is practically an infant, but in look- 
ing at the enrollment we see that it has reached the amaz- 
ing total of ninety members with their dues paid. 

The outstanding feature in the club's calendar of events 
for the year is the variety of meetings held. Miss Peters 
took them traveling through Africa and war-torn Europe, 
but brought them safely back at the end of the hour, thank 
heavens! They have listened to Mr. Beyer's discourses — 
to social scientists, inspiring no end. They also had all the 
fun that goes into preparing a banquet and invited their 
associates of Pi Gamma Mu both here in I. S. N. U. and 
from our neighboring college on the south; Dr. Gould 
Wickey was the speaker at this event. 

Turning to the acknowledgments page of our history 
book we find that the club owes much of its success to the 
sponsor, Miss Lucy Tasher. She has done her best to pro- 
mote cooperation and fellowship during the years she has 
served as sponsor. 

In the section of their record book devoted to the lighter 
things in life are notes on the social side of the club. It 
seems that only the best of refreshments are served after 

meetings. Besides such an attraction, the club also had 
such gatherings as the Christmas Party. Gifts were ex- 
changed and Santa Claus did his best to judge which of 
the members looked the most kid-like in his costume. Who 
do you suppose won the prize? None other than the 
president, one Harold Treash. Prize-winners at performing 
their duties during the year were the remaining officers. 
These included Cecil Wilson, vice-president; Elnora Grimes, 
treasurer; William Hooper, secretary; and Betty Banker, 
corresponding secretary. 

Thumbing further through the pages of this book about 
the followers in the foot-prints of Herodotus; Thorndike; 
Hayes, Moon, and Wayland; Kinneman, Browne, and Ell- 
wood; and others equally glib about the whole affair, we 
found out that this club was organized in the first place 
as trying ground for those people interested in social 
science, who might some day be material for Pi Gamma Mu. 

So if in all the years to come you hear about some 
former I. S. N. U. student doing a marvelous piece of re- 
search work in some phase of social science, do not be 
amazed. Rather, get out your record of the Social Science 
Club and you'll be sure to find that this celebrity was once 
a member. 




Latin Club 

4r% £y 

Would the Latin people love to lay their hands on the 
person who first said that Latin was a dead language! 
Ever since that day, young and old alike have been de- 
fending the cause on a bloody battleground (we thought 
it sounded heroic, too) and proving that Latin is very 
much alive and that rigor mortis is a long way off. At one 
meeting Dr. Anna L. Keaton discussed the percentage of 
English words derived from Latin. Unless one has an 
official code or sign language of his own, Latin is used 
indirectly in almost every sentence spoken. Even the Latin 
majors were amazed! 

Miss Katherine E. Carver, sponsor of the club, has made 
it a tradition that the first meeting be held in her home 
and that a guest speaker address the group. Miss Mildred 
Kerr, associate librarian, spoke on Martial, the Latin poet, 
whose works she examined for her master's thesis. At this 
time everyone also became acquainted and tried (that's 
exactly the word — no more, no less) to work her puzzles. 
Students have entered Illinois State Normal University, 
worked faithfully for four years, and have graduated with- 
out solving some of these puzzles. At this meeting officers 

No wonder they aren't glad — no gladiators 

were chosen, with Bonnie Meers, Catherine Cole, and 
Christine Bessmer as president, vice-president, and secre- 
tary-treasurer respectively. 

"Italia" was the subject of Mrs. Orville Yarger's talk 
at the December meeting. She told of her visit to the 
country's many interesting sights including the Colosseum, 
the spooning headquarters of Rome. 

At another meeting some unfortunate students were sent 
to Hades (not in the modern sense of the word, however). 
To redeem themselves and gain admittance to the Upper 
World, they had to conjugate irregular Latin verbs. It 
began to look as if some were going to be down below 
a good long while, but finally everyone was allowed to 
return. If further details are wanted on life in the Under- 
world, see those who have taken the trip. 

Jupiter, king of the gods, would enjoy reigning over 
the annual spring banquet, the last meeting of the club 
for the year. Though members do not don togas (draped 
bedsheets to most people) or recline on couches, a dis- 
tinctive Roman air prevails; and each member is glad he 
(only two "he's" in the club though) is a "Latin -American."

French Club 

Excusei-moi, mes petites while I forsake our mellifluous 
alexandrians and explain to these Americans who do not 
parler le francais the secrets neither of what "Confucius 
Says" nor of what Herr Hitler says — but of what our little 
Cerc/e of refugees from France say and do in their Normal 
retreat. Safe from air raids and artillery attacks, they 
gather not to recruit soldiers or even to knit socks, but to 
play the games, sing the songs, and tell the fables of 
France's peacetime culture, speaking in French, laughing in 
French, and eating taffy apples according to the rules of 
the most elegant French etiquette. 

Herr Pierrot peeks his head out of his dormer window, 
play-acting the antics of an old French folk-tale. Here 
Mile. Ellis entertains us in her salon for tea. Here Pere Noel 
and Fouettard come at Christmas with their bundles of toys 
and of sticks for good and naughty children respectively. 

One of the highlights of this year's meetings was a first 
nighter's performance of Au Claire de la Lune or as you 
Americans put it "In the Light of the Moon" a shadow oper- 
etta about the cold-hearted Pierrot, who would rather sleep 
than let Guignal and his little boy Nicolas in out of the 
chilly moonlit night. Dialogue and liberetto were entirely 
in French and the acting was, shall we say, descriptive. 

Shadow charades were given, impromptu — the three mus- 
keteers on the march, Jean Valjean dragging Marius 
through a Paris gutter, and other episodes from the classic 
French. The only thing that reminded us of the war-time 
France was the guessing of the sharp-shooters in the audi- 
ence. Members of the cast were Roger Norton, Dorothy 
May Lanigan, Mary Kay Schuler, Frances Taylor, Mary 
Jean Phillips, Alice Bennett, and Leonor Campbell. 

Clarabelle Huggins was le president this year; Margaret 
Schroeder, secretary-treasurer; and Leonor Campbell and 
Frances Taylor served as vice-presidents and program 
chairmen. Miss Margery Ellis, instructor in French, was 

"All who speak French are invited" as the bulletin board 
says enigmatically in French each month — invited to visit 
a petit replique of the society of our story-book, text-book, 
news-reel land of France. In other words, all students of 
French are invited to come and learn about France, its peo- 
ple, their traditions, and their life through a study of their 
language and literature. 

Now, where were we, mes petites? (I hope someone 
knows, 'cause we don't.) 


Sigma Tau Delta 

That was excellent cake, Mrs. T. 

But what if you can't write — your name? 

"The moving finger writes and having writ, moves on." 
Then what does it do? It throws the pen on the floor in 
disgust, wads up the paper and throws it into the waste- 
paper basket, and starts all over again. If there is any- 
thing of the sleuth in you, by now you should be wonder- 
ing just whose finger is doing all this. Well, it's no secret. 
The disgusted mortal is just a Sigma Tau Delta member at- 
tempting to write something really original for his contri- 
bution to the Rectangle, the national magazine of the 

This sleuthin' isn't so bad. Investigating a little further, 
we find that this organization has three purposes: en- 
couragement of worth-while reading, mastery of effective 
written expression, and fostering a spirit of professional 
goodfellowship among students and teachers of the English 
language and literature. Those lucky people who wear the 
black and red pledge ribbons are chosen on the basis of 
scholarship, character, and ability to further the ideals and 
purposes of the club. 

The first people to wear the insignia of the club last fall 
were in charge of the Homecoming Breakfast, the first of 
the year's events for the club. Outstanding among the 
meetings of the year were the Christmas party held at the 
home of sponsor Miss Esther Vinson; the February meeting 
at the home of Mrs. Pricer, when original creations of the 
members were literally dissected; the meeting at Miss 
Stroud's home, when club members read T. S. Eliot's 
"Murder in the Cathedral"; the April gathering at Dr. 
Hiett's home, when Shakespeare's birthday was celebrated; 
and the May Banquet. 

Leading these pen-wielders for the first semester were 
Nelson Boulware, president; Edward Paluska, vice-presi- 
dent; Ethel Olson, secretary; and Esther Vannice, treasurer. 
Second semester officers included Dorothy Shea, president; 
Leonore Campbell, vice-president; Lorraine Hatscher, sec- 
retary; and Ellen Jean Brenneman, treasurer. 

After getting this far in our investigation into the why 
and wherefore of all this, we got in the way of one of 
these flying pens, so goodbye for now! 


Short — one chair 

Sutter says . 


"Going on" is still an apt motto for the Phils, for this 
year they chalked up another victory which put them ahead 
of their rival literary enthusiasts by a score of 42-37. 
Scarcely a man is now alive who can remember when the 
oldest organization on campus — namely, Philadelphia Lit- 
erary Society — was split asunder by a civil feud that has 
resulted in the continued existence of two armed camps at 
each end of the third floor in Old Main. But every student 
of I.S.N.U. and every graduate can tell you about the 
annual battle staged between Philadelphia and its re- 
bellious offshoot, Wrightonia. 

T. J. Lancaster, Sponsor 

The campaign of this year's struggle followed the gen- 
eral outline of past years. Philadelphia's commander-in- 
chief, Sponsor Thomas J. Lancaster, worthy veteran of past 
wars, ordered Eugene Sutter, James Ward, Bertha Holli- 
day, Lola Johnson, Lois Halliday, Dorothy Rutledge, and 
Helen Coles into the fray for this year. 

When the final count of the results was taken, Phila- 
delphia had won 5-2. The triumphant Phils rushed out to 
celebrate, pausing only to revive the commanders-in-chief 
for whom the final tense moments had been too much. 

The officers of the Philadelphia for the first semester 
were president, Betty Ann Smith; vice-president, Beverly 
Brown; secretary, Orvetta Keyes; and treasurer, Eugene Sut- 
ter. The second semester resulted in some promotions of 
officers. Beverly Brown was voted in as president and Or- 
vetta Keyes moved up into the vice-presidency. Reva Fin- 
frock took over the secretary's job and Gilbert Wilkinson 
was appointed to handle the books. 

Philadelphia proved its school loyalty by entering a 
float in the annual Homecoming parade. Another out- 
standing event on their calendar was the annual banquet 
which this year was a banquet to celebrate the victory. 
Guest speakers were President Fairchild, Miss O. Lillian 
Barton, and Mr. George Palmer. The contestants were 
awarded cups for their efforts in making the contest a real 
Phil victory. 

After all this, the Philadelphians look back on '39-'40 as 
one of their most successful years. Philadelphia is still 
"going on." 



These are the active Wrights? 

Kloss comments 

Are they downhearted? Heck, no! Come on, Wrights, 
let's go. In spite of a decision in favor of their ancient 
rivals, Philadelphia, in the annual skirmish, the Wrightonia 
people are taking it on the chin. If you heard someone 
going around the halls chanting something or other about 
"My head is bloody but unbowed," then rest assured that 
this ancient adage was issued from the lips of a loyal 
Wrightonia member. And there are plenty of these loyal 
people running around. Membership in either of these 
literary societies is purely a product of chance. Every 
I.S.N.U. student automatically becomes a nominal member 
of one society or the other by the lottery-like system — sort 
of "You take this one; I'll take that one. You take this 
one; I'll take that one" type of thing; however, the de- 
termining of active membership is not left to chance or 
the wheel of fortune. Rather, those people who are suffi- 
ciently interested in literary activities prepare and polish 
up their best "piece" and then, shivering and shaking in 
apprehension, do their bit before the august judges. If 
they pass this austere group with success, they are then 
eligible for active membership. 

After the new group of members has been duly initiated 
into the society, all members and sponsor Mr. Charles 
Harper, join hands and rally round the flag of old Wright- 
onia in preparation for the yearly tussle with Philadelphia. 
From the ranks of the active members are called forth those 
talented ones who are delegated with the responsibility of 
representing the organization in the contest. This year 

those who answered the call to duty were Andy Kamp, 
dramatic reading; Richard Koehler, vocal solo; John Kelt- 
ner, extempore speaking; Dee Filson, oratory; Esther Heft, 
piano solo; and Eleanor Kloss, debate. 

Leading the club for the first semester were Mrs. Helen 
Samp Farnum, president; Richard Koehler, vice-president; 
Frances McElroy, secretary; and Milton Myers, treasurer. 
Second semester officers were John Keltner, president; 
Violet Hachmeister, vice-president; Shirley Blue, secretary; 
and Milton Myers, treasurer.

Intermediate Teachers 

Nothing masculine about this group 

What did September of 1939 bring for people in the 
intermediate Curriculum? They gathered to celebrate the 
seventh birthday of the Intermediate Teachers Club; they 
revived old friendships that had been dormant during the 
summer; and they began new ones with prospective mem- 

Came October and with it the initiations, informal and 
formal, the latter being held at the home of the club's 
sponsor, Dr. Rose E. Parker. The Homecoming season 
brought the annual luncheon for present members and 
alumnae. With their Wizard of Oz giving victory to Normal, 
the girls won sixth prize in the Homecoming parade. 

November provided an opportunity for freshman mem- 
bers to prove their worth by presenting a program. With 
due respect to the gender of the club the future teachers 
listened to Dr. Marshall's address on "Pioneer Women 
Teachers in Illinois." Showing a variety of interest they 
also listened intently to Miss Mabel Crompton's illustrated 
lecture on her travels in the land of the Midnight Sun. 

With the coming of the Christmas season there was, of 

course, a Christmas party. The club also presented toys 
to the children at the Normal Babyfold. 

The New Year began with a play by the dramatics de- 
partment. Finally when exams were over, the club held 
the bi-annual election of officers. Resigning first-semester 
positions were Yvonne Stutzman, president; June Kosnick, 
vice-president; Edna Coomer, secretary-treasurer; Dorothy 
Keyes, social chairman; Ireta Ronk, program chairman; 
Luella Cantrall, field and corresponding secretary; and 
Margery Minger, publicity manager. Taking over their 
duties were June Kosnick, president; Betty Cole, vice- 
president; Lucille Rodgers, secretary; Laura Heller, treasurer; 
Bernice Maras, program chairman; Alice Benson, social 
chairman; Hazel Schaffer, corresponding secretary; and 
Mary Alice Foster, publicity manager. The sponsor was 
Miss Elizabeth Russell. 

The spring months brought joint meetings with other 
clubs; a Valentine party; a student teachers' forum; a re- 
view of interesting places in Illinois; a hobby night; and 
a talk by Dr. Parker on the status of married women 


Kappa Delta Epsilon 

"Circle of well-trained teachers" is what Kappa Delta 
Epsilon really means. Therefore without circumlocution we 
might as well state that the girls elected to membership 
in this honorary education sorority have proved their right 
to the coveted honor by attaining a junior standing, by 
maintaining a good general scholastic average as well as 
having a high average in education courses, and by pos- 
sessing those qualities of leadership, thoughtfulness, and 
personality so essential to the teacher. 

Discounting the popular opinion that teachers have no 
leisure time, Kappa Delta Epsilon girls this year centered 
their year's program in "Leisure Time Activities for Teach- 
ers." Proving that they really were in earnest, too, they 
started off the pledge service in October by having the 
fledglings tell about their hobbies. In November, Dr. Mar- 
garet Cooper reviewed for the members the types of read- 
ing that the teacher can enjoy and also reviewed several 
of the current books which would prove interesting for 
these future teachers when they reached the "promised 
land," where there was no more assigned reading. This 
meeting was held in sponsor Mrs. Stella Henderson's home, 
and the neophytes of October were inducted into full 
membership. Came the Christmas season and Faye Barton, 
social chairman, played hostess at the Home Management 

House for the K. D. E. girls' party. After a tour of the 
house came the games and prizes and presents and re- 
freshments and everything! From this the club turned to 
"Travel as a Leisure Time Activity" for their January meet- 
ing. Miss Barton's lecture was especially timely since she 
was able to utilize her experiences while traveling abroad 
last summer. The next meeting found the girls studying 
the possibilities of "Health and Recreation for Teachers." 
A most interesting survey of recreational practices of faculty 
members here at I, S. N. U. was presented. At the March 
gathering, the girls again eagerly scanned the list of 
eligible juniors for reenforcements, and after due elimi- 
nation the lucky people were selected who are to carry 
on next year. (The seniors hope to graduate before too 
long.) April 20 found all members donning their best bibs 
and tuckers for the annual Founder's Day Banquet. A little 
more than a month later these same people donned their 
old clothes and walking shoes for the annual spring picnic. 
Responsible for all of the activities of the year were 
officers Frances Taylor, president; Dorothy Shea, vice-presi- 
dent and program chairman; Kathryn Fuller, secretary; 
Elaine Bryant, treasurer; Florence Scherer, field secretary; 
Edith Nicholas, historian; and sponsor, Mrs. Stella Hender-

Kappa Delta Pi 

'Way back in Seven, B. D. (Before Depression), when 
a ten dollar bill wasn't a museum piece (1922 for those 
who must be exact about such things), Mu chapter of 
Kappa Delta Pi saw the bright lights of Illinois State 
Normal University campus for the first time. Since then 
this national honorary educational society has generated 
a light of its own through approximately two hundred 
juniors and seniors of the highest scholastic ranking, who 
have been invited to join the society during its eighteen 
years of existence. 

This year, head light-bearer was Max Chiddix, with 
Bruce Orr as the spare light. Harlan Hosier gathered the 
oil with which to keep the home fires burning but was 
forced to resign when three Co-op parties came in four 
weeks; William Staker then took over the treasurer's duties. 
Frances Taylor gained the envy of many of the fairer and 
mayhap shall we say more hefty sex when she lost thirteen 
and seven-eighths pounds acting as secretary, correspond- 
ing secretary, and membership chairman, proving that some 
good can come of overwork after all. 

Homecoming came and alumni Kappa Delta Pi's came 
to the banquet where Mr. Sam Sullivan, president of the 
I. E. A., spoke. After such a fine beginning, Kappa Delta 
Pi meetings continued with such speakers as Mr. Arthur 
Larsen, assistant principal of University High School, who 
gave them some pointers on graduate work for the 
teacher; and Miss Edna Gueffroy, assistant professor of 
geography, who wowed the scholars with an illustrated 
talk on Hawaii. 

In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to 
thoughts of — food! Kappa Delta Pi members, being no 
exception, gathered to imbibe a few vitamins and calories. 
Dean Schroeder, the sponsor, presided. 

But Kappa Delta Pi members do more than listen to 
lectures and eat. The society has a loan fund for needy 
seniors; the line forms to the right if the G. O. P. wins 
in 1940. 

And so, my children, if you mind your A's and B's you, 
too, can write a thesis on some such educational subject 
as "Which is the more nutritive — the hole in the doughnut 
or the hole in spaghetti?" and join K. D. P.

The ability to read is a very marvelous thing. 

Once when I was very young I read a poem about 
"What is so rare as a day in June or something" and it 
made me stop and think that here was something, maybe. 
After due reflection came the question, "What is so rare 
as a Kappa Phi Kappa man?" Why? Because the fellows 
who belong to this club are hand-picked for proficiency 
in educational subjects and all other courses, plus char- 
acter and personal traits of a high standard. Now it 
should be pretty evident that this makes this a very select 
group because there aren't too many eligible males of 
this type running around loose or otherwise. 

When I got a little older I one day came across the 
statement that "In union there is strength" and by the 
process of association arrived at the conclusion that such 
must have been the thoughts of Dr. Peterson and Dr. Malm- 
berg when they organized this club in 1931. The local 
Alpha-Tau chapter of Kappa Phi Kappa, the national 
honorary education fraternity, has about thirty members. 

Another day, and purely by chance, I saw one of those 
red Normal banners displayed in the window of the Co-op 
bookstore and on it the words, "Gladly wolde he lerne, 

and gladly teche." Here, thinks me to myself, is the real 
reason for all those meetings these fellows have during the 
year. What did they learn at all these gatherings? Well, 
they might have heard Dr. Decker give some interesting 
information about the problems of the beginning teacher. 
Or perhaps they might have learned about education with 
the A. E. F. in France when Dr. Ridgley spoke. You can 
be sure that they didn't skip the meeting when Mr. Pringle 
enlightened the club about the psychology of the endocrine 
glands, including some reasons why women are so hard 
to understand. 

Remembering the childhood adage that "All work and 
no play makes Jack a dull boy," the club had plenty of 
social meetings too. Right in there whenever the refresh- 
ments were to be handed out you could always find Jack 
Secord, president; David Ryden, vice-president; Virgil New- 
lin, secretary-treasurer; Roy Larson, corresponding-secre- 
tary; and sponsor, Dr. Cole. The second semester found 
President Jack yearning for sunnier slopes so Roy Larson 
took over his job. 

So after all this, we still say the ability to read is a 
very marvelous thing!

Kindergarten Club 

Originating in 1917 under the capable hands of Miss 
Margaret E. Lee, the Kindergarten Club has come to be 
one of the most active campus organizations. 

Seemingly living up to what was expected of kinder- 
garten majors, the club's activities in the early years ran 
to such things as hair ribbons and dolls for initiation. 
Gradually, however, the girls began to make the club a 
more dignified body that attempted to encourage its mem- 
bers in worth-while projects and also tried to contribute 
toward all-school activities that would impress upon the 
general student-body the importance of the role of the 
prospective Kindergarten-Primary teachers, the guides in 
the formation of characters for the world of tomorrow. 

This year the club adopted a central theme around 
which their activities have been based, "The Teacher in 
the Community." In keeping with this theme they tried 
to bring speakers, representing the work of the different 
institutions in the community, who spoke on the correlation 
between their work and the work of the school. Mrs. Orval 
Young, social worker for the McLean County Child Guid- 
ance Clinic, was a speaker at one of the monthly meetings 
and explained the clinic's function and its relation to the 
school. Miss Olga Adams, president of the National Asso- 
ciation of Childhood Education, spoke on "The School in 

a Democratic Society." Dr. Jones of the Baby Fold of 
Normal also contributed an evening to explaining his work. 

The club is especially interested in its alumnae and 
originated the Annual Alumnae Convention, which is con- 
ducted as a forum discussion group, with such topics as 
"The Teacher's Place in Planning a Curriculum." 

Not to be misleading, we assure you the club has not 
turned its back upon all social affairs. The year's work 
was begun by a formal tea in the Student Lounge. In- 
formal initiation included a hay-ride and picnic, while 
formal initiation in the First Christian Church was midst 
the subdued atmosphere of sincere and dignified solemnity. 

The annual formal dance held in May this year carried 
us all on shipboard and took us out to sea as we danced 
and made merry. 

Homecoming brought third prize for their Hobo Parade 
float, and the Alumnae Luncheon, which gave many of 
the girls their first chance to meet the alumnae and be- 
come acquainted with their work in the field. 

Miss Agnes Rice was the able sponsor, and the execu- 
tive board included Jewel Goodman, president; Louise 
Chally, vice-president; Maxine Lind, treasurer; and Jose- 
phine Ayton, secretary, with Constance Myers as program 
chairman, and Susanne Staff as social chairman. 


Pringle-Hall Club 

Seated: Roeske, Force, Frankie 

Standing: Dalton, Jordan, Rowe, Akers, 
Wood, Rozum 

Pringle, Pringle, little star. How I wonder what you are? 
Yes, yes, for lo these many years I have thought that 
Pringle-Hall was a place. Now to my surprise I find that 
it is an organization of the upper grades curriculum. The 
club was not named after the theft of some jewels — the 
Pringle haul — but after two eminent child psychologists, 
G. Stanley Hall, a pioneer in the study of the upper grade 
child, and Ralph W. Pringle, a contemporary from our own 
campus. All of this christening and stuff took place back 
in 1934, when some students decided that the members 
of the upper grades curriculum could stand a little uniting. 
Any student in the upper-grade curriculum may join and 
learn all about the upper-grade child. 

Having realized that what this school needs is not a 
good five cent cigar but more student government, Pringle- 
Hall club provides for two sets of officers a year — one for 
each semester. The first semester of this momentus year 
the club was led by William Wood, as head uniter; Loretta 
Jordan, as next in line; Ruth Rowe, the keeper of the books; 
and Virginia Roeske, money handler de luxe. The second 
semester dawned and after the shuffle was over, Mary 
Rozum held the president's gavel, Helen Frankie came out 

with the post of vice-president, Eleanor Dalton emerged 
with the secretary's books, and Virginia Roeske, held the 
bank book. 

Homecoming was made memorable for returning upper- 
graders by the luncheon given by the club. Miss Erma 
Imboden gave the group some helpful hints for happy 
pedagogues. Keeping the theme of the luncheon in keep- 
ing with the rest of the homecoming activities, a miniature 
village was set up at the table and each guest was as- 
signed a house on Main Street of "Our Town." 

The merry month of December saw the club listening to 
a Christmas program, "Everywhere Christmas," planned 
and given by the freshmen in the same way as might be 
done with upper grade pupils in a regular school, and then 
departing to go carolling. 

Came spring and the unusual thing happened — the club 
went on a wiener roast in Forest Park. As if this didn't 
add enough pounds to the girlish figures, a farewell 
banquet was given for those who were graduating. These 
departing members bade Miss Thelma Force, the sponsor, 
a fond adieu and promised to return for the homecoming 
banquet next fall. 

I think I'd smile, too, McKay

Home Economics Club 

Do you suppose that they know the old 
adage about the way to a man's heart? 

The way to a man's heart ... to be trite but still true . . . 
would easily be accesible to the future Home Economics 
teachers from I.S.N.U. The Home Economics Club origi- 
nated way back in 1924 and the ideals and objectives 
have matured along with the girls, from piglails to perm- 
anents and high heels, until they promote the development 
of leadership, cooperation, and responsibilities, and the 
training of active leaders from home and community life. 

With Sarah Becker presiding and Hope Jones, Irma 
Grotefeudt, and Marjorie Kimpling, vice-president, secre- 
tary, and treasurer, respectively, as leaders, the Home Eco- 
nomics Club has added another page of interesting activi- 
ties and fun to its sixteen-year-old book of experiences. 
Not without the aid of program chairman, Eileen Griswald, 
publicity chairman, Jean Brigham, and social chairman, 
Ruth Augsburger, would the club have achieved its success 
in 1939-40. 

Representing I.S.N.U. early in the year at the State Con- 
vention of the American Home Economics Association held 
at Chicago were Georgianna Leigh, Marie McKee, and 

Fern Green. There, true to the old, old story, when a 
bunch of women get together — anyway, a good many 
ideas of interest to Home Economics students were ex- 
changed. Another step in the progress of the club was 
the bi-weekly radio programs over WJBC. These programs 
were under the direction of Gladys Watkins and Marie 

The pride of the class of 1940 is the beautifully planned 
and furnished Home Management house which opened its 
doors to visitors all year. To this class went the joy of fur- 
nishing and planning the arrangements of the house, and 
along with this the dubious comforts of living in a partially 
furnished house while waiting for the next shipment of 
equipment to come. 

An armistice — or need there be one — was declared 
November 11, when the annual Home Ec.-Ag. party was 
held. The Christmas party featured a gift exchange, and 
presentation of gifts for the Babyfold. The chili supper, 
the high school convention, and the annual picnic rounded 
out the year's activities.

Industrial Arts Club 

"There is no time like the present" must have been in 
the thoughts of some of the people enrolled in I. S. N. U. 
back in 1908 because one day a group of them decided 
that one of the things this school needed was a Manual 
Arts Club. So what did they do? Did they hesitate? Did 
they vacillate? No! They got busy and actually organized 
a Manual Arts Club. 

So — go the old storybooks — the years rolled on and 
soon it was 1929, and one day an Industrial Arts major 
said to another Industrial Arts major that he thought that 
the name of the club should be changed to the Industrial 
Arts Club. The other replied, "What's in a name? By any 
other name we'd still work." And therefore the dauntless 
ones went ahead with the revision, and as a result the 
club is now known as the Industrial Arts Club. 

Once a month the members meet in both a social and 
a professional setting. Meetings are professional in that 
the fellows learn and discuss what there is to know about 
sawdust and the finer arts of sawing. They are social in 
that there are refreshments and refreshments and we do 
mean refreshments. 

How did you like your Homecoming program? Is it all 
tied up in blue ribbon and stored among your souvenirs? 
If you're looking for the people to thank for this addition 
to your treasures, then you've come to the right place. 
Editing and publishing the program are an annual duty 
of the club. This year Robert Sebastian served as the 
editor-in-chief, assisted by Sam Nicholas in photography; 
Ray Webb and Philip Wilson, advertising; and other men 
of the club. The printing was done in the Industrial Arts 
Department shop by these future industrial arts teachers. 
The fellows have also edited and published a handbook 

for industrial arts teachers, which should be a help when 
they are putting into practice what they have heard 

Ray Webb, senior, served as president of the club; Larry 
Cargnino, junior, as vice-president; and Leslie Miller, senior, 
as secretary-treasurer. Sponsor for the year was Dr. R. 
M. Stombaugh. Queen of the club was Joyce Kinsey, junior, 
who was the only woman enrolled in the industrial arts

Kappa Mu Epsilon 

Jones, Jackson, Orr, Kaiser, Mills, Radcliff 

From the mist of numbers and symbols, squares and 
circles, and other mystifying devices, Mr. Mills and Miss 
Atkins drew the Euclidean Circle of 1928. In 1932 the 
figure was clarified and classified as the Illinois Alpha 
Chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon, the National Honorary 
Mathematics Society. The thirty charter members of that 
group were the first in the state to be recognized by the 
national fraternity. 

Completion of mathematics courses through Integral 
Calculus, a B average with no more than three hours of C 
and no D's in this field, a general average that is above 
the median of the university, and the necessary dues are 
the requirements for entrance into this mathematical maze. 

The purposes of the organization are to further interest 
in mathematics, appreciation of its beauty, and to provide 
a society for the recognition and bringing together of stu- 
dents in mathematics. In particular, the organization offers 

to its members the opportunity to study and discuss 
problems and topics in mathematics, for which there is no 
time offered in the regular college classes, and to study 
and discuss problems in mathematics beyond the scope 
of the present curriculum. 

Programs at the monthly meetings this year included 
Dr. Larsen's summary of his recently completed thesis for 
his doctor's degree; a varied program of mathematical 
fallacies and recreational opportunities in mathematics 
given by the members; Dr. Mills' lecture and slides on 
astronomy; and also Dr. Whitten of the Foreign Language 
Department as a guest speaker. Other meetings of the 
year were of a social nature. 

Officers for the year were President Gauss, Jack Rad- 
cliff; Vice-president, Pascal, Florence Jones; Secretary 
Ahmes, Roberta Kaiser; Treasurer Napier, Thomas Jackson; 
Historian Cajori, Bruce Orr; Corresponding Secretary 
Descartes, Dr. C. N. Mills. Dr. A. H. Larsen was the sponsor. 


Science Club 

In 1912, the Science Club was founded by Professor 
Frederic Barber of the Department of Physics. The purpose 
of the club was to keep faculty members and students of 
science acquainted with new developments in the -field. 
The club is made up of faculty members from the depart- 
ments of biology, geography, mathematics, agriculture, 
and home economics and forty students from these fields. 
The fortunate forty are chosen by faculty vote on the basis 
of proficiency in scientific courses. Some five hundred stu- 
dents have been elected to Science Club since the founding 
of the organization. 

Each month in SI 05 we find the august body gathered 
■for a meeting. They started in October with an illustrated 
lecture by Dr. L. W. Miller, assistant professor of biology, 
on "The Common Mushroom." Later the group was served 
refreshments in a truly scientific manner — ice cream in 
beakers; the sulphuric acid and so on had been removed. 
At another meeting Mr. R. W. Fogler, assistant professor 
of chemistry, enlightened them on "My Summer in a 

During the course of the year they had the privilege of 
hearing two off-campus speakers. In December, Mr. H. A. 
Gorman from the Wood Conversion Company in Chicago 
discussed "Ensulation." All the more romantic members 

of the club turned out to hear what Dr. F. S. Mortimee, 
professor of chemistry at our neighboring institution, Illi- 
nois Wesleyan University, had to tell about stars. No doubt 
their curiosity was satisfied completely. 

The student members, not to be entirely outdone by the 
faculty, presented a program on the "Nature and Function 
of X-Ray." Those participating were Stanley Breen, physi- 
cal science, Walter Switzer, biological science, and Bernard 
Ryder, chemistry. The girls in home economics, with Geor- 
gianna Leigh as chairman, were hostesses to old and new 
members that night. 

In January all members trekked over to the student 
lounge for the annual mid-winter party. Dare one mention 
the prominent faculty member who found himself under the 
table? This affair was in charge of Miss Elinor Flagg. Stu- 
dents who helped were Evelyn Ensign, Stanley Breen, 
Jeanne Brigham, Bernard Ryder, and Bruce Orr. 

Science Clubbers won't forget the grand finale to the 
year — the steak fry at Lake Bloomington. Under Dr. Good- 
ing's supervision they got first-hand information on life in 
the open. This program was planned by the executive 
committee of Miss Ross, president, Stanley Breen, vice-presi- 
dent, and Grace Keeney, secretary-treasurer.

Gamma Delta 

So this is the group called Gamma Delta 

This must be another Christmas party 

They took two Greek words, "gnosis" and "diakonia," 
meaning knowledge and service; they took all the stu- 
dents who were interested in maintaining Lutheran fel- 
lowship in regard to school life and increasing Lutheran 
consciousness on this campus; they selected as sponsor 
Mrs. Rose Buehler; and they mixed this all up and came 
out in 1936 with Gamma Delta society. Open to all 
Lutheran students interested in furthering the aims and 
the ideals of the society, the membership numbers over 

Stirring up the bi-monthly meetings are Paul Krueger, 
president; Clarence Rimke, vice-president; Dorothy Willms, 
secretary; Alten Grandt, treasurer; and Helen Wasmund, 
membership chairman. The Reverend W. Hohenstein of 
Trinity Lutheran Church in Bloomington has served as 
spiritual advisor since the organization of the club. 

The first meeting of each month is in charge of Melvin 
Holtz, the educational chairman. Following a recipe for 

lectures, reports, and discussions, the course for the year 
included a group discussion on the viewpoints and results 
of religious conferences; a discussion of the fundamental 
Lutheran doctrine; a lecture "Good Christian Living" by 
Melvin Holtz; and a Lenten talk by Reverend Hohenstein. 

The second meeting of each month is planned by Elsie 
Buser, the social chairman. For the club's social activities 
she has provided a welcoming party for all new Lutheran 
students held at Cook Hall; the Homecoming breakfast, 
an annual affair; a Christmas carolling party; Christmas 
and Valentine parties in the Student Lounge; and the 
annual fellowship banquet. 

Two activities of the club which no doubt mean the 
most to the members are the candlelight service held at 
Smith Hall for the formal recognition of new and old mem- 
bers, and the setting up of the Nativity scene in the Indus- 
trial Arts Building during the Christmas season for the 
benefit of the whole student body. 


Newman Club 

In the year of the census, 1940 A. D., Normal nose- 
numberers were not non-plussed when they found Newman 
Club members numbering one hundred and fifty-three. 
They knew the nature of the year's programs and were 
not surprised that the membership had reached an all- 
time high. 

With the return of the sponsor, Dr. Regina Connell, to 
the campus — after a year's absence during which she com- 
pleted work for her doctorate at Columbia — , the year's 
programs got underway. Heading the list was the annual 
fall wiener roast held this year on the University Farm. 
Then following in the fall came Homecoming and with 
Homecoming, the breakfast in Roland's Neo-Classic Room 
(commercial). The Newmanites then formally initiated 
their neophytes in December; followed this with the in- 
stallation into the National Federation, and topped it all 
off with a supper and dance in the club rooms where the 
ceremonies were held. Included in the calendar was the 
annual Christmas party, followed by Miss Ruth Henline's 
Emily-Posting the members on the right thing from the 
lecture of the same name. Later in the year — as is the 
usual custom — the Newman Club received Holy Com- 
munion in a body. Then came May and with the May 
days, Mother's Day, and the May banquet. With all 
members in accord that it was very warm for May, they 
all set forth in search of the cooling zephyrs so seldom 
found at spring picnics. 

This organization for Catholic students had its origin 
on the campus in 1924 as the Catholic Student's club for 
students at Normal, Wesleyan, and Brown's Business Col- 
lege. In 1925, through the efforts and ingenuity of Rev- 
erend Father Moore and Reverend Father Shea, the organi- 
zation was renamed for the great English convert and edu- 
cator, John Cardinal Newman, and the membership limited 
to Normal students. The year 1939-40 was a banner year 
In the history of the I. S. N. U. Newman Club, for it 
marked the admission of the organization into the National 
Federation of Newman Clubs; our group was the second 
in the state to join the national society. 

Because of the Club's affiliation with the National 
Federation, five members were selected for their outstand- 
ing contributions to become members of the National 
Honor Society. The chosen few: Ann Devanney, Margaret 
Mavis, Jack Radcliff, Dorothy Shea, and Pauline Van 

The year's officers were president, Jack Radcliff; vice- 
president, John Coughlin; secretary, Frank Marschik; 
treasurer, Mary Alice Morrissey; Program Chairman, 
Frances McKern; Social Chairman, Mary Rita Kane; Mem- 
bership Chairman, Ann Devanney; Historian, Margaret 

The Reverend Father S. N. Moore, pastor of Holy Trinity 
Church in Bloomington, has been Chaplain of the club 
since its institution.

Y. W. C. A. 

You probably weren't on the finish line when all this 
happened because it was over a half century ago. Are you 
asking what? Why the famous event when Normal crossed 
the finish line with the first student Y. W. C. A. in the world. 
This must be what they mean when they quote Dewey and 
Demiaskevich and Kilpatrick on progressive education. Uh, 
huh, we've had philosophy. 

Be all this as it may, the year 1872 saw the installation 
on this campus of our Y. W. C. A. club. 

First on the year's calendar is the annual Walkout 
Breakfast, which means just what it says — you walk until 
you are all worn out and then you have breakfast. This 
is an excellent opportunity for eating and then aching. 

Following this on the list of events comes the very color- 
ful Lantern Parade, when the girls wend their way over 
the campus and finally end the procession over in Sher- 
wood Forest. One of the most impressive of the tra- 
ditional rites of any club on campus, this, too, is an annual 

Likewise prominent on the fall schedule of activities is 
the All-Women's tea because it means the renewing of old 
friendships and the addition of new ones. 

The Christmas season is always eagerly awaited by the 
Y. W. C. A. girls because they are looking forward to the 
White Christmas Service, at which Mrs. E. A. Turner reads 
Christmas stories while they gather around their lighted 
tree. Likewise, the Christmas season finds the Y girls busy 
keeping tab on the sale of Christmas cards, an annual 
undertaking of the group. This year the girls spent most 
of their spare time making "white gifts" for the children 
at the Babyfold here in Normal. 

Springtime brings the gaiety of banquets and confer- 
ences, the most important of which were the advisory 

board and cabinet members tea at the home of Mrs. R. W. 
Fairchild. Delegates were sent to the regional conference 
at MacMurray and also to the summer conference at Lake 

This year's official staff included Marjorie Bane, presi- 
dent; Ruth Compton, vice-president; Melba Whitacre, sec- 
retary; Ella Mae Elgin, treasurer; Wilma Buchholz, worship 
chairman; Margaret Hatch, world service chairman; Faye 
Barton and Rose Homann, social chairmen; Bertha Holli- 
day, social service chairman; Yjean Staples, pianist; Dorothy 
Shields, publicity chairman; Dorothy McFadden, decoration 
chairman; and Mary Williams, finance chairman. Miss Neva 
McDavitt was the sponsor.

Fell Ha 

"5870, please . . . what, the line's busy? ... my gosh!" 
Oh, never mind, fellow, what can you expect when you 
have ninety-four fair females housed under one roof? 
There's bound to be a rush at Fell Hall tonight or any 
other night. 

What's life at Fell Hall like? Well, to begin with, there's 
Mrs. Mae Warren, the director of the hall — gracious, 
charming, friendly, a real house-mother. Leadership, per- 
sonality, and scholarship brought twelve girls to live in the 
hall as honor residents and to help Mrs. Warren with the 
directing of the hall. Remember the voice that answered, 
"Fell Hall," when you called up Cecilia last year? No 
doubt it belonged to one of these twelve people: Clar 
Huggins, president; Jean Strange, secretary-treasurer; Betty 
Wolfe, keeper of the keys; Betty Hurdle, social chairman; 
Betty Banker, Mary Jane Eisenmayer, Joan Clark, Virginia 
Pruden, Susanne Staff, Norma Boyd, Evelyn Ensign, or Faye 

To all the people who have lived at Fell Hall there are 
certain memories that could have been developed nowhere 
else. Foremost among memories of this past year was the 
metal cow from which a nickel brought forth orange juice, 
milk or chocolate milk, and sometimes all three. Other 
things that are definitely labeled as Fell Hall memories are 
gab sessions until the wee small hours; house meetings and 
pyjama parties; radio dances and teas; formals and recep- 
tions; chatter in the dining room; echoes in the long halls; 
lights flickering at ten-thirty; telephones buzzing all day 
and all night; singing between courses; and the friendly 
"Hi" of one Fell Hall girl to another.

This is IT — in the Spring

Hurdle, Strange

THIS is it — anytime 

A reasonably efficient call-boy system (well, what can 
you expect when you have to get all the fellows routed 
out?), an excellent dining service, lively house meetings 
where fantastic "motions before the house" must be ex- 
plained "for the third time," and a "twenty-four hour-a- 
day" type of social life are some of the things that make 
Smith Hall boys what they are today. 

Located on University Street, across from the athletic 
field, Smith Hall houses thirty-two fellows. This is the 
Hall's sixth year in fostering fellowship accompanied by 
proper social training, and its success has been in the 
hands of "Mother" Ream, the house-mother, and Dean 
Linkins, faculty sponsor. The term "success" is used prop- 
erly here because the fellows are duly proud of the fact 
that they have used the same constitution for a whole year. 

Under President Milton Holtz, a well-rounded regime of 
satisfying social activities and a sufficient amount of do- 
mestic peace were enjoyed. The social program, carried 
out by Vice-President Paul Crafts, began with the third all- 
school Injun Summer Hop, where all the braves and their 
Minne-ha-has did some fancy hopping. At Christmas the 
fellows and their friends found the annual Christmas For- 
mal a good way to get into the spirit of the season. Kenny 
Lane's orchestra dispensed the desired musical cheer. Inter- 
spersed among all the other things on the social calendar 
for the year were a number of radio dances. After all 
these social affairs the treasury was well drained, but 
Treasurer Harold Fairchild found enough left to buy a new 
radio-victrola combination — a long-desired addition to the 

Secretary Graham Whipple's record book listed as after- 
dinner speakers President Fairchild, Dr. Houston, Mr. Hor- 
ton, Mr. Carrington, Mr. Kinneman, Mr. Beyer, Dr. De- 
Young, and Miss Waldron.

Pi Kappa Delta 

Chiddix, Ward, Smith, Brinegar, Keltner 

Reception for International Debaters 

Hear ye! Hear ye! Pi Kappa Delta hereby pardons all 
those who have ever asked, "What is Pi Kappa Delta — 
an education society?" But live on in this state of ignorant 
bliss no longer! Know you that Pi Kappa Delta is the 
national honorary fraternity for those excelling in debate, 
oratory, or extemporaneous speaking. The fees are small, 
the pins impressive, the opportunities unlimited. A re- 
ception extraordinary is given early in the fall to those 
who are qualified in any of the three fields. 

Listen and hear further. What do these people do? 
What is their case? As circumstantial evidence, or other- 
wise, they quote from their year's calendar of events, "A 
Homecoming banquet at which the guest speaker finished 
in time for everyone to go to the dance (Professor Charles 
A. Harper was the speaker this year), and a picnic in the 
spring that really had enough food to distinguish it from 
a wiener roast." After such testimony, who are we to 
doubt the prowess of such a club? One hardly needs to 
say that such events speak for themselves. 

In case, however, you are not convinced, they offer 
the following in their rebuttal speeches. Every three years 
a national convention of Pi Kappa Delta is held and this 
year the meeting took place in Knoxville, Tennessee. The 
local Illinois chapter was represented in all three fields — 
debate, oratory, and extemporaneous speaking. The 
debaters were Max Chiddix and James Ward in the men's 
division and Eleanor Kloss and Pearle Smith in the 
women's division. Orators were Dane Harris and Betty 
South; extemporaneous speakers, John Keltner and Lois 
Halliday. Dr. F. L. D. Holmes and sponsor Professor 
Charles A. Harper accompanied the group. 

If after display of such information this group still has 
not proved its existence, then we refer you to the officers. 
These people should be able to convince you that there 
is a good reason: President Max Chiddix, Vice-President 
John Keltner, and Secretary-Treasurer Mrs. Louise Kav- 


Men's Debate 

In spite of the apparent fact that the ratio of men to 
women on this campus is such as it is there are more 
men bandying words about than there are women. 
Fourteen men have been upholding the honor of Normal 
in various tournaments this season — Max Chiddix, James 
Ward, Gene Sutter, Richard Koehler, James DePew, 
Oscar Walchirk, Duncan Lennon, Don Walton, Clarence 
Richardson, Harold Mintern, Dane Harris, Harold De 
Weese, Quinton Mooberry, and Carrol Wintersteen. 
Debates participated in by Dr. F. L. D. Holmes's proteges 
were Charleston: Ward, Chiddix, Lennon, Walton, Rich- 
ardson, Mintern, Harris, and De Weese; Whitewater: 
DePew, Mintern, Lennon, Walton, Sutter, and Koehler; 
Huntington-Manchester: Sutter, Koehler, DePew, Mintern, 
and Walchirk; St. Paul: Chiddix and Ward; Lake Forest: 
Chiddix, Ward, Sutter, and Koehler; and the Pi Kappa 
Delta National: Chiddix and Ward. 

First Row — Sutter, DePew, Walchirk, Chiddix

Women's Debate 

Women have been making words fly here at Normal 
and elsewhere since time and the debate season began. 
Nine women participated in debate activities this year — 
Cillia Korish, Paula Vermillion, Margaret Parret, Norma 
Goodwin, Lois Halliday, Ellen Sorrenson, Dorothy Rut- 
ledge, Eleanor Kloss, and Pearle Smith. All the women 
mentioned participated in Charleston's tourney and also 
in Normal's eighth annual invitational tournament where 
Miss Kloss and Miss Smith tied with DeKalb women for 
second place. Miss Sorrenson and Miss Rutledge repre- 
sented Normal at Whitewater, Wisconsin; Miss Korish, 
Miss Vermillion, Miss Parret, Miss Goodwin at the Hunt- 
ington-Manchester tourney; Miss Kloss and Miss Smith 
at St. Paul; Miss Kloss, Miss Smith, Miss Halliday, and 
Miss Goodwin at the state debate contest and also the

Wilson, Hall, Keltner, Scott, Barnes, Unsicker, Tubb, Cole, Henderson 

Cross Country 

Fourteen highly hopeful harriers dashed out to answer 
the call of Coach Joseph T. Cogdal this year for the hill and 
dale sport. Topmost of these lads were Captain Marion 
Cole and two other lettermen, Lowell Hall and John Scott, 
colored flash from Centralia. Among the others who re- 
ported were two squadmen, John Davis and John R. Scott 
of Chicago, John McGinnis, graduate half-miler, and Un- 
sicker and Keltner, the cream of the freshman squad. 

In their inaugural meet, on a chilly October day, the boys 
flying the Normal colors completely annihilated the har- 
riers of Western Teachers of Macomb. The score ended 
17-41. Cole, Scott (Centralia), and Keltner were never 
pushed during the run. Hall followed the winning trio to 
the tape to take fourth place, and Unsicker, Henderson, 
and Scott (Chicago) finished seventh, ninth, and eleventh, 
respectively. Winning time was 16:32.1. 

Kalamazoo presented a very tough five against the 
Birdies in their second dual meet of the season, but were 
soon disposed of to the tune of 24-31. Captain Cole fin- 
ished first with Leonard of Western close to his heels. 
Johnny Scott (Centralia) crossed the tape for third place 
and Keltner finished fourth. Ex-Captain Tubb and Hall ran 
seventh and eighth. 

The boys took the hides of two schools on October 20 
At Wheaton they met the host school along with Loyola 

University and Captain Cole and the lads led the pack to 
the tape to win handily over Wheaton via the 16-39 route 
while at the same time they topped the Loyola quintet 
22-33. Again Cole, Scott, Keltner, and Tubb finished in a 
deadlock for first place honors. Journeying on northward, 
the Birdies met the Milwaukee Brewers and eked out a 
24-31 win. Cole was the winner with Captain Cebrowski 
second and Scott and Keltner finishing in that order. 

With Butler University and Charleston Teachers College 
as the prey, the harriers turned on both barrels and toppled 
both foes in a double dual meet. It was the sixth and 
seventh win and so the Normalites remained untied or un- 
beaten thus far in the '39 cross country campaign. For the 
first time this year Cole was not first as he finished second 
to Captain Southward of Butler. Fox of Butler was third 
and Gene Keltner and John Scott tied for fourth place. 
Results, Butler 28-Normal 27; Charleston 40-Normal 17. 

Chasing Wisconsin's Walter Mehl to a new Loyola course 
record, Marion Cole led State Normal's cross country team 
to a second-place berth in the ninth running of the annual 
Loyola University invitational on Nov. 4. The Badgers 
netted just 27 points to the second-place Birdies' 54, while 
Milwaukee Teachers garnered 68 for third place. Both 
Mehl and Cole broke Greg Rice's (Notre Dame) record 
of 17:44. 


They're off, and it looks like a fine start

The final big event of the season for the boys was the 
Conference meet. This year it was held at Charleston. 
Illinois, and was won by the harriers of Normal who elim- 
inated all other competition to add the I.I.A.C. champion- 
ship to their already coveted laurel branch. Captain 
Marion Cole romped home over the soft muddy course in 
19:31 to retain his berth as the number-one man of the 
conference, while Irvin Tubb, Gene Keltner and John Scott 
finished in that order with Hall in the 16 spot to keep the 
Normal total down to the winning 25 points. Indiana Cen- 
tral College of Indianapolis copped the first-place both in 
the invitational meet with a total of 51 points. State Nor- 
mal runners garnered the second medal with 53 points. 

The victory at Charleston was a fitting climax to practi- 
cally a perfect season for the Cogdal-coached dalers. 
They copped seven dual meets to keep their record of three 
years endurance unblemished. They were lowered to the 
second division only twice; Wisconsin and Indiana teams 
bested them. This victory also gave the boys undis- 
puted claim to the state title. Thus was concluded another 
most successful season for Mr. Cogdal and his warriors.

Coach Frye, Co-Captains McReynolds end Garnero, Coach Hancock 

The Diamond . . . 

What is causing all those strange noises we hear ema- 
nating from the gymnasium? I really think it needs investi- 
gating. Ah — the dawning! "Handy" has put in his call 
for future Dizzy Deans and Babe Ruths this week. Limber- 
ing-up exercises — calisthenics — sore muscles — tired 
arms — and no less than a hundred of them! All hopefuls, 
and among them several excellent-looking prospects. 

Let's take a look at some of these boys. McReynolds 
looks good — a senior co-captain, and although he ha? 
patroled the outfield for Coach Hancock in past seasons, he 
will no doubt be converted into a second sacker this season 
if possible. There's Mac's mate, big Joe Garnero. He is the 
other co-captain who holds down that all-important job 
behind the batter. A powerful slugger and an excellent 
throwing arm make him the best catcher in the conference. 
Those three boys working out to your left — Babe Caldwell, 
a sophomore, and Sam Chicas and Ed Healy, freshmen — 
are promising young understudies to Captain Garnero. 

There are the infielders getting into shape. Ryden is 
being pushed hard for that first base sack by a young boy 
named Turner. Down around the keystone sack there is 
really a scrap on for positions. There is Logan Cox, diminu- 
tive senior, working alongside Don McReynolds. Ah, yes, 
there are Virgil Eades and Pete Palumbo working diligently 
for jobs, too. The hot corner is another job which is wide 
open to anyone showing promise. Larry "Jeep" Kindred 
seems to have the inside track but keep your eyes on those 
two youngsters, Fagerburg and Castleman. 

Say, "Handy" has a real job on his hands when he starts 
to single out three men to patrol those outer pastures. 

Handy's happy isn't he Pete? 

There are George Spirduso, a letterman and a very timely 
hitter from the windy city, a couple of young freshmen 
in big Merle Edmunds and "Andy" Young. Another boy 
who is looking exceptionally good in pre-season pellet 
chasing is Bob Ferguson. 

There's Earl Sprau, only returning letterman of the pitch- 
ing corps from last year — should have a great year. He 
will be aided by a very able group of enthusiastic boys in 
Pierce and Paulson, who got experience last year, and also 
by such hopefuls as Jim McBride, Herrmann, Gilbertson, 
and Frye. 

Those youngsters who stick it out and seemingly suc- 
ceed will be well paid for their time and effort. Coach 
Hancock once more presents a most formidable schedule. 
The two opening contests will no doubt be two of the 
stiffer games. Big Ten schools are always strong, and ac- 
cording to all winds, the Badgers of Wisconsin and the 
"Fighting lllini" are no exception this season. Season play 
will see Wisconsin open here on April 5, and the Birdies 
will attempt to slash out Illinois on the next day. DeKalb 
again will be on the line for four games with a double 



header scheduled there April 13 and another here on May 
18. Illinois Wesleyan, who performed brilliantly in the 
South this spring, appears twice on the Normal card. Other 
non-conference games to be played are Bradley there on 
May 27, Iowa State Teachers May 3, and Iowa State the 
next day, and Upper Iowa in April. Other than the four 
games with DeKalb, the conference pickings include two 
games each with Eureka, Macomb, and Charleston.

— Topper 

Truer words were never spoken, for they exemplify the 

characteristics that made the Illinois State Normal tossers, 

for the second consecutive year, champions of the Little 

Nineteen Conference. Thus for the first time in Normal's 

history they won the title two seasons in a row. With a 
nucleus of four lettermen, Coach Cogdal began to build 
his winning aggregation. 

Pre-season sighs of anguish were turned into loud 
bravoes as the cage crew performed their wide capers. 
Of the lettermen returning, first and foremost was Captain 
Charles Beck, a veteran of three seasons. Although not the 
fastest, tallest, or cleverest man on the floor, he made up 
for all these by the dynamic urge to be a leader, one who 
could and did serve as the steadying influence over the 
whole outfit in times of stress. On several occasions "Buss" 
reached seemingly insurmountable heights in taking re- 


bounds off the enemy's basket. Most formidable of these 
times was at Carbondale when Captain Beck out-maneu- 
vered, out-thought, and out-jumped the 6 ft. 3 in. players 
of the Southern "Bridegrooms." 

The other graduating senior and letterman is Arthu 
O'Byrne, an exceptional ball handler with an excellent eye 
for the basket. Height and ranginess were a great asset 
to this Cardinal forward who this year reached his scoring 
peak, ranking second in the I.I.A.C. with 116 points. Art's 
ability to snatch a rebound and convert it into a timely 
basket made him indispensable to the team. 

John Scott, loop's leading scorer and unanimous choice 
for All-Star on more than one paper's sport pages, was 
this 6 ft. 2 in. "little brown bomber" from Centralia. John 
garnered 150 points in conference play in addition to 175 
more in other games. When Scotty and O'Byrne started 
clicking, a most formidable scoring combination was at 
work. Scott, notwithstanding his shooting, ball handling, 
and rebounding abilities is a wonderful team man, com- 
parable to Johnson and Barton of former years. 

Alternating at the forward posts with O'Byrne were 
three very promising men, Larry Kindred and Del Fager- 
burg, sophomores, and Dale Reid, a Wood River boy and 
a freshman. Kindred, a cool and collected ball handler, 
was the third leading scorer of the Birdie tossers. Reid and 
Fagerburg are two very hard working boys who gave their 
all for the alma mater and will be back next year. 

Along with Beck at the guard positions were Leroy 
Brandt, a short and fast man who headed Coach Joe's 
famed "T" defense, John Baldini, another letterman, held 
back greatly by injuries, and Jim McBride, another hard 
worker and a handy man to have around when the going 
was tough. Along with this group were other boys who 

Coaches Struck and Cogdal 

worked just as hard and were just as much needed. Logan 
Cox, Roy Larson, Bob Edwards, and Johnny Phelps all gave 
their time and hard work to the cause of the team. 

Arkansas opened the Birdie schedule on Dec. 5 in the 
Redbird gym and was soundly spanked 41-27. Following 
this came Valparaiso, Millikin, Milwaukee, St. Joseph, and 
Oshkosh. All five teams fell before the heavy barrage of 
baskets as the boys from the Redbird nest seemed to im- 
prove with every game. Came the Christmas tourney held 
Jan. 1 and 2 on the Normal and Wesleyan campuses. In 
a maze of basketball the Birdies walloped Illinois College 

A Squad 
Brandt, Cox, McBride, Beck, Walker, Reid, Larson, Edwards, Baldini, Fagerburg, Phelps, Kindred, Scott, Cross, O'Byrne 


45-29, fell to St. Joseph of Indiana 37-41, whipped South- 
western of Louisiana 38-32, and then were finally elimi- 
nated by the strong St. Joe outfit again 28-29. 

The Cardinal flippers continued their red hot pace as the 
new year started by trouncing such strong rivals as Chicago 
Normal and Valparaiso. 

When the conference opened, Normal, Charleston, and 
Carbondale all appeared extra strong. Charleston, despite 
brilliant shooting and floor-playing ability, was downed 
twice by the Birdies in two tight thrillers. One ended 45-43, 
the other 43-39. The highly touted Cogdalmen were riding 
high and walked over their conference foes with little diffi- 
culty. Elmhurst, Macomb, and Eureka all bowed out twice 
during the season. It was rounding into a two team race 
with the Bridegrooms of Carbondale hoping to dethrone the 
champions and thus take over the rule themselves. But the 
Birdies carried a joyous 43-30 victory and the conference 
championship on their wings as they winged their way back 
to Normal. 

The Normalites scored 473 points to their opponents 315 
in conference play. The total for the season's play was 980 
to 789 points with 21 games won and 5 lost for a percent- 
age of .808. Thus a very brilliant and successful season was 
ended, and to. Mr. Cogdal and Captain Beck go all the 
praise and respect they so highly deserve.

B Squad 
Kneeling — Young, Bieber, Grandt, Berutti, Motter, Silverstrini, 
Standing — Herrmann, Barnes, Martin, Morgan, Juhl 


The twofold purpose of maintaining a "B" squad is to 
give boys who aren't ready for the varsity a chance to en- 
gage in intercollegiate competition and to act as a feeder 
for the varsity. Each season sees a number of the previous 
year's "B" team players as varsity regulars. Of this year's 
championship squad Kindred, Brandt, and McBride were 
graduates from the Yannigan ranks. 

This season an eight-game schedule was played. The 
smallest number of players used in any one contest was 
nine, the largest twenty-three. The high lights of the sea- 
son were the two victories over the Wesleyan freshmen. 
The first of these was by a one point margin, the second 
by five points. Other wins were two against Lincoln Junior 
College, two against the team from Chanute Field at Ran- 
toul, and one against Eastern Teachers. The only setback 
was against the latter in the opening game of the season 
at Charleston. 

Only freshmen and sophomores are eligible to try for 
places on the team. Any freshman or sophomore boy may 
report for practice and remain out for practice until the 
end of the season. The squad is not cut nor is competition 
limited to a few boys. One of the main objectives, as pre- 
viously stated, is to give every boy an opportunity to play 
as much as possible. 

Another vital but obscure function of the reserve squad 
is to furnish practice for the varsity. The boys are asked 
to represent Macomb one night, Carbondale the next, and 
so on. They also furnish the defense against which the 
varsity practices its formations. 

Members of this year's squad were: Oswald Bieber, 

George Cross, Thomas Darnell, Delmar Fagerburg, Sher- 
win Gilbertson, Wayne Gilbertson, Alten Grandt, Andrew 
Henson, Vernon Holloway, Leonard Juhl, Theodore Laing, 
Howard Martin, Elmer Morgan, Donald Motter, Russell 
Reid, Herbert Roberts, Tulio Silverstrini, Donald Tolbert, 
Dane Walker, Andrew Young, John Loeb, Price Barnes, 
Paul Berutti, Gilbert Herrmann. 

All these boys will be back next year and get that all- 
important chance for a place on the Birdie varsity. This 
year they performed most nobly and have profited greatly 
in experience and hard work. No doubt their two wins 
over the "Rhinies" were the highlights of their season.

In a year when championships were the rule and not 
the exception at Ole Normal, Genial Gene Hill and his 
matmen were not going to be the ones to let the rest of 
the athletes on the campus lord it over them. Maintaining 
that old adage "The bigger they are the harder they fall," 
the coach arranged a schedule filled with star-laden teams. 
Included on this year's card were five matches with teams 
in the Big Ten, five with the small colleges of the state, 
and one with one of the strongest of the small schools in 
the Middle West, the University of Dubuque. 

After a rather disastrous start during which time the 
grapplers lost to the University of Wisconsin, the Univer- 
sity of Illinois, Purdue University, and tied the University of 
Chicago, they finally settled down to competition with 
schools of their own class and in the remainder of the dual 
matches were able to win three and tie one while losing 
two close decisions to Wheaton and to DeKalb, one which 
was later avenged. 

Then came the ultimate in any Normal wrestling team's 
career — the winning of the Wheaton Invitational. It was 
the first victory of any Normal team in this event and the 
first time in the history of the meet that Wheaton College 
had not won this little get-together of the strongest small 
colleges in this sector. 

Ray Wesley cinched the trophy for the Red and White 
when he won his last match by a fall to garner two points 
and a third place, which enabled the alma mater to nose 
out the University of Dubuque by a score of twenty-four to 

No Normal man finished lower than fourth in the meet 
and it was this all-around strength in every division which 
spelled victory for the homefolks. Captain Walt Switzer 
started things off right by taking second place in the 121 
pound division. Jean Ring upset the dope bucket and won 


This match is approaching the crucial point 
Coach Hill, Manager Childress, Ass't Manager Hargis 

a third in the 1 28 pound class, winning two matches by 
falls in advancing to this coveted spot. The Mighty Mite, 
Warren Sperry, had to be content with a second place also. 
It was quite an upset, for this was his first loss of the 
season and to a man he had beaten quite severely the 
first time they met. Charley Jungels came home with a 
fourth at 145 pounds. 

Tom Wright gave those who followed him something to 
shoot at by winning Normal's first gold medal in competi- 
tion with a few 155 pounders. Cecil Hospelhorn, our only 
freshman wrestler, brought home the bacon by virtue of his 
victory in the consolation match which won a third place 
among the 165'ers. Kenneth Fleming also upset the dope 
bucket by defeating the overwhelming favorite, Davenport 
of DeKalb, and gave the Red Scourge their second gold 
medal. Then came Wesley's thrilling encounter which 
sewed up first place over a field of seven teams. 

Letters were awarded to all those who competed at 
Wheaton and to Manager Jack Childress. So with all these 
men back except Switzer and Sperry, we may expect a 
banner year in 1940-41 for this growing sport. 


Time advantage is yours, Sperry. Stick with him 

No boredom on this bench 

no place to suck yo 
thumb. Besides, you're a 
to bite it of?

Punts and Passes 

Most Valuable Player Sperry 
Captain-Elect Gaffney 

Captain Secord 

"Handy" does it again! For the second time in three 
years his scarlet-clad chargers romped home with the 
lion's share of the I.I.A.C. title 'neath their belt. 

Pre-season dopesters conceded the Red Birds but medi- 
ocre success because graduations, ineligibility, and with- 
drawals gave them every basis for drawing such a con- 
clusion. With the possible exception of triumphing over 
Culver-Stockton in the opener, performances of the team 
up to the homecoming encounter gave the pessimistic pre- 
dictors a vision of their belief coming true. However a 
group of returning veterans, plus a number of outstanding 
rookies, all imbued with the will to win, began to hit their 
stride and finished the season by copping the conference 

Finis to this season rounded out the football career of as 
star-studded an octette as ever graced a Normal gridiron. 
Foremost in this group who have hung up their moleskins 
for the last time is Captain Jack Secord. Bothered in early 
season by a troublesome knee, the Bloomington boy over- 
came this handicap to lead his team to victory from the 
quarterback post. More than living up to his calling card, 
Joe "Prancer" Vucich distinguished himself by prancing 
his way through four years of hard conference struggle. A 
product of St. Viator, "Looping" Luke Gleason will be 
missed next year when the aerial attack is needed. Brainy 
field generalship and pass defense were the forte of Bill 
Miller, reserve quarterback, who has made his final appear- 

ance for Ole Normal. Recipient of the most valuable 
player award, the Carter Harris trophy, was Warren Sperry, 
diminutive guard who was a standout in nearly every game. 
Winner of the same trophy last year and Sperry's running 
mate, was "Tiger" Garnero, who did double duty as a 
punter and line-backer. Voted the most improved player 

Coaches Frye, Hancock, Struck 



on the 1939 squad was Al Voss, senior end from Elgin. 
Howard "Muscles" Lehwald ended his career by winning 
an "N" as varsity end. Another boy who hailed from St. 
Viator and did an excellent job in line-backing was Jack 
"Ripper" Stoltze. Completing his fourth year as manager, 
Philip "Red" Wilson bowed out of the picture leaving a 
large hole in this department to be filled by Don Fitz- 

To offset these departures, the returning lettermen cause 
a brighter change in the outlook for next year. Totaling 
sixteen in all, the 1940 members will consist of six backs 
and ten linemen. Ends Morgan, Hoffbuhr, and Smith will 
flank tackles Hubbard, Hammond, Morrissey, and Trumpy. 
Lone letterman guard is Chicas, who next year will be play- 
ing alongside Captain-elect Gaffney or Goddard, return- 
ing centers. Ball toters who will answer Coach Hancock's 
first 1940 roll call are Covill, all-conference fullback, and 
second leading scorer in the conference, Hackett, whose 
forte was speed and quick kicking, and a quartet of fresh- 
men flashes: Barnes, Eddy, Gehrt, Schrieber. 

Leadership for the 1940 team falls upon another Bloom- 
ington boy in Harold "Wildcat" Gaffney, all-conference 
snapperback. Filled with fight and the spirit to win, Gaff 
will make a fine captain. 

A resume of the season reveals Normal's final results as 
being four wins, three ties (all scoreless) and two defeats. 

Normal, III., Sept. 23. — A not-too-polished group of 
Birdie gridders ran rough-shod over a hapless Culver- 
Stockton crew 20-0 for the first win of the season. 

The V1DETTE is right there for first-hand information 

Platteville, Wis. — Sept. 30. Here the combined forces 
of arctic weather and powerhouse cheeseland plungers 
proved too much for Hancock's forces. Under the arcs the 
Normalites fell to a 13-0 defeat. 

Normal, III. — Oct. 7. A stubborn eleven from Ypsilanti, 
Michigan, journeyed down to McCormick field to meet a 
very unyielding Red Bird outfit. Final results — Ypsilanti 0, 
Normal 0. 

Macomb, III. — Oct. 14. In this, the conference opener, 
the Redmen ran the ball all over the field with Hoffbuhr, 
an end for Normal, stepping out of bounds on a touch- 
down pass. They still couldn't cross the enemies' goal in 
a fair manner. 0-0 again! 

Charleston, III. — Oct. 21. Ho hum, Eastern homecoming 
somewhat dampened by Normal's third consecutive score-

less tie. Again it was Hoffbuhr's bad luck which played 
havoc with the Birdies' hopes. Out of bounds again! Re-

Normal, III. — Oct. 28. Local homecoming found the 
Birdies playing brilliant football before a homecoming 
crowd of some three thousand highly elated fans. Scaled 
the southern Egyptians of Carbondale to the tune of 14-7. 

Normal, III. — Nov. 4. Ole Normal keeps in the thick of 
the conference race by soundly threshing the "Pirates" of 
Elmhurst. Several reserves see action on gusty day and 
aid in the win. Results 19-0. 

DeKalb, III. — Nov. 11. Armistice Day, and the Normal 
warriors show one hundred and fifty loyal fans they really 
mean business. With perfect football weather as a setting, 
the gridders rifle their way to 13-7 win and also a share 
of the conference championship. 

Bloomington, III. — Nov. 18. A field of mud, overcast 
skies, and a crowd of 3500 tense fans. All these were 
evident as the green wave of the Wesleyan Titans rolled 
heavily on. Titan power plays paced the Wesleyan win 
in Municipal Stadium. Birdies drop tight thriller 8-0.

Standing — Beach, Magill, McLaughlin, Vieth, Perrilli, Krueger, Roer 

Ducking the cold winds of March, Coach Hill's racquet- 
eers hied southward during the Easter vacation on a 1500- 
mile intensive opening, playing such teams as Evansville, 
Carbondale, Lambuth at Jacksonville, Tenn., and Lipscomb 
and Vanderbilt at Nashville, Tenn. Although the boys did 
not return with any mortgages on southern plantations for 
trophies, they made a nice showing and demonstrated 
their capabilities to Genial Gene. 

Three lettermen of last year returned along with Beach, 
a letterman in '28. This formed a nucleus for the squad. 
The freshman outlook is good with Roemer and McGonigle 
each handling a racquet in good style. Old-timers Mc- 
Loughlin, Magill, Calkins, Krueger, and Perrilli are all 
ready to do or die for the old alma mater in the tough 
thirteen match schedule which will wind up with the Little 
Nineteen matches on this campus May 25. 

The Birds will meet the lllini again this year and try to 
avenge the 7-0 loss of last year. Only one match has been 
scheduled with Elmhurst — twice a victim to the wicked 
serves of our boys. Other matches included in the sched- 
ule are with University of Purdue and Indiana State. 

Benoni Green's absence will probably cause some of 
the aspirants of the state to sigh with relief, however, his 
aces on the south campus are missed. 

This season's weather is keeping the squad indoors 
dodging the apples tossed around by the Hank Green- 
bergs and Dizzy Deans. It may be though that by that 
time the foundations for the new student union building 
may be rising on the clay greens. It seems like practice 
is getting to be quite a racquet. 

Coach Hill 
Captain Magill 




Coach Hancock, Captain Stombaugh 

When Coach Hancock issued the call for divot diggers 
this year he must have hoped that Santa would pay an- 
other visit and leave a few Tommy Armours hiding behind 
the pin on number nine green. At the time this goes to 
press I don't think Handy has been able to trek around 
that far because of the shortage of dog teams, so they 
may still be waiting to be discovered. 

About the only men reporting back this season for that 
noble Scotch game of pill-rolling was young Tom Stom- 
baugh. Tom was also elected Captain to fill the vacancy 
made when Secord failed to return the second semester. 

Wesleyan is the first on the schedule to meet the novice 
Redbird green-pitchers. It is hoped that Bradley and Ma- 
comb will readily submit to their doom when faced by the 
Slicers. DeKalb and the boys from south of the creek will 
come here May 1 1 for a double dual meet. Then in the 
offing is the Teachers College meet, of which Carbondale is 
the host. Macomb is next on the schedule before the Little 
Nineteen here. Last year's squad was strongly fortified 
by the return of four lettermen from the previous year and 
everyone agrees that it was a top-notch year on the roll- 
ing green, but after the years of plenty come the years 
of famine. And good golfers are few and far between 
famine or no famine. But by the time the golf ball tea has 
drained out of the cups Coach Hancock will have his duf- 
fers picked and in good shape. 

Some of those who hope to catch the eye of Mr. Han- 
cock in the first few weeks of tryouts are A. J. Woodard, 
a sophomore from Roodhouse, George Sider, a senior from 
Chicago, Carl Erwin, another senior from the links of 
Lawrenceville, and Bruce Orr and Max Chiddix both sen- 
iors from the local ranks of Normal, Illinois. Along with 
this group of upper classmen, there will no doubt be sev- 
eral aspiring freshmen. All these will be highly welcomed 

by Coach Howard Hancock and from these ranks will be 
chosen the fortunate men to represent Ole Normal on the 
fairways of competition. 

These boys will attempt to fill the big gaps in the 
"slicer" team made so very prominent by the graduation 
of John Prombo, Captain Carter, and Jack Secord.

Track and Field 

Coach Cogdal and Captain Hardgrove 

'Ace" breezin' along as per usual 

These three hurdlers are hurryin' someplace 

This is Fetzer; he's not camera-conscious 

When Coach Cogdal made his first call for thinlies 
this year, the crop that put in an appearance looked 
gaunt indeed. One consolation was at hand when it was 
made known that only three lettermen had been lost 
either by graduation or other means. Those three men 
are ex-Captain Rice, John Scott, upstate, and the star 
two-miler Irvin Tubb. This is a bright spot in that Coach 
Joe knows just about what to expect from these boys. 

Jim Hardgrove, ace sprinter from Streator, leads the 
cinder men this year as captain and highly important cog 
in the tracksters' machine. "Ace"«is a crack century and 
220 yard dash man as well as being a part of the relay 
team. Jim will lead the boys in meets against Washington 
U., Charleston Teachers, Kalamazoo, a quadrangular with 
DeKalb, Illinois College and Wesleyan, in the Elmhurst 
Invitational, the Teachers' College Meet at Carbondale, 
and finally the Little Nineteen Meet, down McCormick 
way to close the season. 

The wearers of the red and white this year will be 
built around such outstanding returning lettermen as Jim 
Hardgrove, captain and sprinter, Scott, 440 yard dash 
and high jumping representative, Marion Cole, the Law- 
renceville miler, and Floyd Covill. 

In the sprint department Hardgrove, Lanning, and 
Gerfen are the only returning lettermen. Carson Honey- 
man and DeBois are two good prospectives for this de- 
partment. Gerfen, Fetzer, Hackett, and Bill Hoffbuhr, a 
Pekin lad, will carry the broad jump load. 

In Scott, colored flash from Centralia, Normal will have 
a most outstanding 440 man. He will probably be pushed 
hard by Hackett. In the longer runs Coach Cogdal has 
in Marion Cole, colored boy from Lawrenceville, one of 
the best, if not the best man in the state. Marion is tops 
when it comes to the mile and 880 yard runs. He will 
have very able assistance in the mile run from John 
McGinnis and Vernon Miles, a Sidell freshman. 


The hurdles this year will be covered by such returning 
lettermen as Floyd Covill, King, and senior trackster Joe 
Vucich. Will Hoffbuhr will no doubt leave the broad jump 
position at times to aid the cause along. 

Elmer Morgan and Johnny Scott will attempt to best 
all opponents when it comes to the high jumping division. 
In the pole vault Ed Fetzer, a letterman of the 1938 season, 
will strengthen that region of activity along with Ike 
LaBounty and Don Motter, both freshmen. 

In the weights such heavy tossers as Vucich, Covill, 
and Hackett will probably carry the biggest share of the 
load. New aspirants to posts in the javelin, discus, and 
shot put are such men as Butcher, Sisevich, Ellison, Silver- 
strini, Trumpy, and Bob Smith. 

In the relay team the Birdies will once more be strong 
contenders in every meet. With Captain Hardgrove, 
Marion Cole, and John Scott leading the list of four, only 
one man needs to be located to complete a very torrid 
relay team. Hackett and McGinnis seem to have the in- 
side track on the job and will probably fight it out for 
the job between themselves. 

Coach Cogdal will without a doubt round into shape a 
championship team before the season is ended. Although 
sorely hindered by bad weather and inability to see all 
his men in action outside, a banner season is expected.

Drop-kick champion 

With their powerful tri-motored passenger plane over- 
hauled and ready for service, the members of the intra- 
mural department and their popular pilot, Eugene Hill, 
who was at the stick, began the annual trip to foreign 
lands of competition. 

Arriving at McCormick field, the home of the greatest 
array of sport celebrities known to the world, the flyers 
witnessed the playing of the championship struggle for 
the touch football crown, with the Indians smothering the 
boys from down "beanery" way, the Campus Inn, 25-6. 
Between halves another champ was honored in the person 
of Pete Palumbo who kicked 13 perfect drop-kicks out of 
a possible 25. Pete won the medal after a battle with 
eight competitors. 

Still another feature caught the eyes of the visiting avia- 
tors. The running of the cross country run produced a new 
winner in "Slim" Gene Keltner, ex-U. Higher. Gene out- 
lasted a strong thrust made by McGinnis and Henderson 
to break the tape in 14 minutes and 35 seconds. 

Turning their attention to hangar G.Y.M., the pilots 
waited the arrival of the muscle men who soon appeared. 
"Shorty" Wise started things off by pinning Jimmy Thorsen 
in the 128 division. Floyd King took a fall from Warren 
Frink at 136 pounds. Bill Chase, 145 pounder, won a de- 
cision from Ike LaBounty. At 165, Charley Grimm ushered 
out Otis Knudtson via the fall route. Sandholm was 
crowned king of the 175'ers, and Ray Wesley dropped the 
heavy-weight bout to Wiseman. 

Jack Roemer's outstanding paddle artistry carried the 
wingers to the ping pong den where Jack was in the 
process of conquering "Lefty" Dautenhahn in the yearly 
singles tournament. Motor trouble kept the visitors still 
longer, and in an effort to make their stay a pleasant one 


a new feature was added to the program. A ping pong 
doubles tourney was inaugurated. Ev Henry and Harold 
Dautenhahn defeated Jack Roemer and Bill Nance, 24-22, 
18-21, 21-17, 21-19. 

More activity called the flying I.M.'s as the playing of 
the first basketball tournament now held the limelight in 
the big hangar. Showing their heels to everyone, the Red- 
Bird All Stars out-maneuvered the popular Campus Inners, 
23-19. Third place went to the Little Squaws over the 
Pulverizers, 44-25. This event of the intramural program 
was by far the most anxiously awaited affair of the year. 
Nearly 300 players composed the six leagues. Members 
of the intramural class served as capable officials during 
festivities, and manager Al Withey was instrumental in 
seeing that play was run according to the necessary rules 
of etiquette. In connection with the hardwood occurrence, 
a free throw tourney was held. Otis Whitlow dethroned 
the defending champion, Bill Miller, and took the ribbon 
when he tossed in 23 out of 25 shots at the hoop in the 

With the aviators finding their plane again in working 
order, Director Gene called his men together, and took off 
for a definite destination in the city of the evergreens: 
Bloomington. With the completion of a beautiful three- 
point landing, the bird-men found themselves at Pat 
Harkins' bowling alley on Front Street. The coliseum was 
a scene of the annual kegling tourney which was being 
concluded under the capable direction of Manager Paul 
Crafts. Cliff Wiggers knocked over 1555 pins during the 
nine game matches that were held at the Front Street lanes, 
and captured the gold plated, imaginary bowling ball from 
a field of 50 keglers. Frank Hansing with 1518 pins was 
second, followed by Bruce Orr and Bernard Twoomey with 
1490 and 1481 points respectively. During the year the 
Cook Hall alleys were also at the disposal of the men three 
days a week. This sport proved to be one of the most fre- 
quently attended of the many recreations on the calendar.

are just a few that make this department one of the biggest 
and most popular on the campus. Hill and his large crew 
have cooperated to the highest degree and the division is 
rated as one of the best in these parts. 

Although it is not possible to forecast the outcomes of 
other diversions that are occupying the time of the men of 
the campus, it is possible to reiterate what some of them 

Homecomers will remember the seasonal tug-of-war be- 
tween the freshmen and the sophomores. As usual the 
yearlings won the struggle and gave the sophs a good 

Early in April a second basketball festival was held 
with the Little Squaws taking the trophy from the Co-op. 
Haegers won third place from the Aces via the forfeit route. 

From the south we again hear the roar of those mighty 

motors of the intramural squadrons' shining juggernaut. 
After circling the field once, they landed long enough to 
say that they would be unable to stay for the results of 
the handball, softball, badminton, volleyball, and the 
weekly mixed swims held at the Y.W.C.A. in the neighbor- 
ing city. 

Aside from the games witnessed by the flyers, the male 
population enjoyed the spacious acres of the Bloomington 
Municipal Golf course. A great number answered the call 
to the greens. 

In conclusion, mention must be made of the extremely 
popular hobby nights sponsored by both the men's and the 
women's intramural departments. Many recreational con- 
tests were offered such as volleyball, badminton, ping 
pong, shuffleboard, box hockey, and numerous table 


Women's Intramurals 

Even as the Campus has had more buildings and im- 
provements added to its original number, so the Women's 
Intramural Program has had many improvements and 
additions to its original activities. 

Women's Intramural Records are first found in the 
W.A.A. records which were begun in 1920. At that time 
six major sports were offered, and participation was based 
on point system open to W.A.A. members only. 

By 1927 intramurals had grown to include fifteen sports 
besides Outings and Recreational games. The program 
became open to all girls in school. 

In 1932 Miss Esther Hume, present faculty intramural 
head, became sponsor of W.A.A. and head of intramurals. 
Under her excellent supervision permanent records were 
begun, sportsheads were organized into a governing 
Board, and Women's Intramurals began to take a definite 
place as an outstanding program on the campus. 

The intramural program has steadily grown until today 
the Board, composed of thirty-two members, completely 
organizes and conducts an intramural and extramural pro- 
gram, besides sponsoring many prominent social events. 
The Board of this year should be complimented for the 
splendid program it has presented. Faculty sponsors aid- 
ing Miss Hume and the students are Miss Barto, Miss Frey, 
Miss Bergland, Miss Bally and Miss Thielen. 

All sports have shown an increase in the number of 
participants. Records of the last few years show notable 
increase of student interest in Outings and Social activities. 
Badminton and Table Tennis are new activities in the pro- 
gram and were supervised by Alice Kleinfeldt, student 

head of recreational games. School Play Nites have been 
introduced to the program in conjunction with the Men's 
Intramural Departments. 

Although extramurals have been limited this year be- 
cause of the convention, the following pages prove that 
intramurals have continued to grow. 

One of the events this year was the very different social 
activity of the Topsy Turvy Tea Toddle, a co-recreational 
affair. This leap year dance with its charming vegetable 
corsages was proclaimed a success by all who attended. 
Other notable events were the All-Women's Sports Dance 
in the fall and the All-Women's Christmas Party and Dance. 
The Installation Banquet of May climaxed the social year. 

From simple early morning hikes and half-haphazard 
overnite camping trips, Outings have expanded into com- 
pletely organized and educational affairs. This year's pro- 
gram was headed by Martha Humphrey. It included a pre- 
convention camping trip in the fall at which twenty-three 
visiting delegates were the guests of fifty girls from I.S.N.U. 
The spring camping trips have proved very successful with 
the minimum of fifty to sixty girls on each trip. Other high- 
lights of the year were several trips to the ice-skating rink 
in Urbana; one at which pre-convention delegates were 
entertained and another which was co-recreational and in 
conjunction with the Men's Intramural Department. 

Hobby Nights have proved to be such good drawing 
cards, that the department's equipment was scarcely able 
to accommodate the players. Alice Kleinfeldt was student 
head of hobby nights.

The Topsy Turvy Tea Toddle 

One of the regular fall sports which draws many girls is 
field hockey. This sport is headed by Jean Strange assisted 
by Vera Morris. Hockey is one of the first sports which is 
listed in the intramural records. The honorary squad 
traveled to DeKalb for an extra-mural sportsday. 

Another popular fall sport is that of soccer, which was 
headed by Fayetta Samuels this year. Soccer is one of the 
later sports added to intramural activities. The last three 
weeks of soccer intramurals are spent in combining soccer 
and basketball techniques in the game of speedball. 

Archery is offered in both the spring and fall terms. It is 
a more recently added activity to the program. This year 
it was made co-recreational. Geraldine Armstrong, as- 
sisted by Jean Keith, directed the sport. 

The student head of bowling this year was Gertrude 
Koenig, assisted by lola Stoops. Bowling was one of the 
original seven sports offered, and today it is one of the 
more popular individual sports. 

Shirley Brauer and Joan Clark were heads of basketba 
this year. Basketball is divided into two beginning sections

and an advanced section. It was one of the beginning 
sports and is as well liked now as it ever was. The varsity 
team made two extra-mural sportsday trips — one to 
Charleston, and one to MacMurray College. Of the seven- 
teen members of the squad, nine will be graduated this 
year. Eight of these girls have been on the extra-mural 
squad three years. They are Brooks, Nicholas, Royse, 
Smargiassi, Starkey, Strange, Van Raemdonk, and Wolfe. 

Among the winter sports is volleyball, headed this year 
by Andrea Riber. This is a popular sport not only in intra- 
murals, but also in physical education classes and in 
hobby nights. 

Although swimming was one of the original sports, it

has been more successful this year than in the past few 
years. Betty Paxton was head and Doris Groshong assisted 
her. Mary Jane Wullenwaber, a senior physical education 
major and qualified life guard, taught all classes in intra- 
rumal swimming. 

Dancing is an ever popular activity. The intramural pro- 
gram includes both tap dancing and social dancing. Elsie 
Buser, head of social dancing, and Ruth Parkinson and 
Ruby Arnin, heads of the tap dancing group, took com- 
plete charge of the teaching of these activities. 

Table Tennis and Badminton, ever popular as hobby 
night activities, have gained a place in the intramural 
program because of their success this year. Much credit

goes to Alice Kleinfeldt, student head of these activities. 
Dorothy Govas won the Table tennis tournament. 

Women students are fortunate that the intramural pro- 
gram offers golf, a leisure time sport, among its activities. 
Mary Murray was head of this sport. 

Baseball, America's number-one sport is also an intra- 
mural favorite. Marjorie Martin was this year's sport head. 

Tennis which ranks high as an individual sport, was 
offered both in the fall and spring. It is divided into be- 
ginning, intermediate and advanced sections. Beginning 
and advanced groups are taught in the fall, and inter- 
mediate and advanced groups in the spring. Heads this 
year were Mary Jane Wullenwaber, assisted by Harriet 
Lopeman. Harriet, besides being a mainstay on the var- 
sity squad has done an excellent job of coaching in intra- 
murals. The varsity squad made an extra-mural trip to 
Carbondale in the fall. Other trips for this squad included 
an exchange match with Eureka, a trip to the University of 
Illinois, and the annual Millikin meet. 

Under the skillful guidance of the faculty sponsors, this 
year's Board has submitted its contributions to the building 
of the intramural program. Faculty sponsors are Miss 
Hume, Miss Barto, Miss Frey, Miss Bergland, Miss Bally, 
and Miss Thielen. 

Thus are the year's improvements in the building of the 
intramural program added. On to this the years will add 
more extensions of successful sports to be offered to 
fortunate girls of I.S.N.U.

An all-star cast ... the class of 1940! 

Did you see our show "Getting an Education"? It ran 
for four years at I.S.N.U. Anyhow, on June 10 the show 
is closing and we're taking our last bow before the foot- 
lights. They're placing the sign "B.Ed. 1940" on the door. 
It was a great show, remember? 

A fellow named George Brinegar stepped on the stage 
and directed our activities in that first hectic year. Then 
under Carl Erwin and the sophomore advisory board, we 
made the second act a huge success. Everyone was clam- 
oring for more! As high and mighty juniors we were pretty 
"big time" — right up there in the lime-light with Bob King 
heading the executive list and the one and only "Doc" 
Gooding as sponsor. 

Coming to the final act, which began in September, 
1939, we saw as the leading male characters Bruce Orr, 
president, and Stan Breen, vice-president. The feminine 
lead was taken by the girl who held the pen and purse, 
Dorothy Shields. In the supporting cast, better known as 
the Advisory Board, there were Charles Beck, Jeanne 
Brigham, Jean Butler, Max Chiddix, Beth Davis, Vernon 
Durston, Evelyn Ensign, Francis Goff, Ray Heckel, Elfrieda 
Heer, Paul Jones, Florence Jones, Jane Morris, Bob King, 
Dick Koehler, Jack LaBounty, LaVerne Leach, Ethel Olson, 
Connie Opperman, Ralph Pasley, Ed Pearson, Jack Rad- 
cliff, Wilson Richmond, Don Rocke, Emma Jo Scott, Dottie 
Shea, Alice Sleevar, Bill Staker, Jean Strange, Fran Taylor, 
Fern Wafflard, Lucille Waters, and Doris Wierman. 

Those in the cast who were given recognition for out- 
standing portrayals were Max Chiddix, winner of the Uni- 
versity of Illinois scholarship; John Scott, student council 
prexy; Harlan Hosier, Co-op Party Council head, who saw 
that we were provided with the best in sweet and swing; 
Dottie Shea, Index organizations editor; Johnny Keltner, 
debater; Gen Atkinson and Moreen Kelley, loyal Women's 
Leaguers; Faye Barton, student council representative and 

winner of the Jesse E. Rambo award in Home Economics; 
B. J. Rouse, who was welcomed back to the cast in the 
second semester from Merrill-Palmer, the Home Economics 
School in Detroit; Betty Wolfe, who made the other side 
of the gym famous and was also Keeper of the Keys at 
Fell Hall. Hayes and Berry, prominent Blackfriars; Wilma 
Buckholz, Y.W.C.A. president; Roy Larson, Kappa Phi 
Kappa leader; Raymond Pettigrew and Beth Davis, Vidette 
staff; Martha Royse, president of W.A.A.; Marty Humphrey, 
president of Physical Education Club; Elsie Buser, president 
of Orchesis; and Pauline Van Raemdonk, Helen Smargiassi, 
and Alice Kleinfeldt, active in sports. 

Playing the stellar roles in the pigskin panorama were 
Luke Gleason, Bill Miller, Joe Vucich, Joe Garnero, Al 
Voss, Cap'n "Handsome Jack" Secord, and Warren Sperry, 
winner of the Carter Harris trophy for the most valuable 
player. Art "Lanky" O'Byrne and Captain Charles Beck 
added much to the hardwood quintet. Dave Ryden gave 
his all to baseball. Gamma Phi members were Jim Thor- 
son and Walt Switzer; Captain Switzer was also seen pin- 
ning opponents to the mat. Included in this sports scene 
was John Prombo swinging a mean mashie. 

Speaking of swinging — or should we say slinging — 
August Pagel and Foster Fletcher were slinging the oils and 
tempera, while across the corridor the grease paint re- 
ceived the same treatment from Rhoda Van Huss, Connie 
Opperman, and Wilma Austin. 

When the house lights dimmed, the orchestra began 
and we looked to see who was there — John Cummins, 
slapping that bass, and Mary Deyo and Virginia Linn pre- 
siding at the pianos. 

And so that was the show. The scenes of this final act 
have been unfolding until we come to the climax — June 
the ninth brings Baccalaureate and on the tenth the scene 
of scenes — Commencement! The road is calling and the 
show must go on —

Explicitus Est . . . 

The finishing touches to a college career — or call them com- 
mencement activities if you must. To the 1939 seniors, they meant 
the last opportunities for memory-making here at I.S.N.U. 

To begin with, there was a contest over who could get the best 
sunburn, consume the most food, and do the least swimming — 
speaking specifically, the senior picnic held at Lake Bloomington on 
Thursday, May 18, under the chairmanship of Ernest Pohle. 

Came Wednesday, May 24, and would you believe it? The only 
people cutting assembly were a few faculty members! Why? Be- 
cause it was the seniors' Faculty Take-Off and under the chairman, 
Francis Huggins, the faculty really got taken. Somebody once said 
that there would come a day or something and the tables would 
be turned, or the worm would turn, or words to that effect, and 
that was the day. 

On Thursday evening, June 1, when the seniors struck the pre- 
liminary chord for commencement activities, they proved that col- 
lege is something to sing about after all. Singing and swinging out 
in their newly-donned caps and gowns, the graduates-to-be 
blended Auld Lang Syne with the Red Bird Song and Norma! 
Loyalty as they marched in the traditionalized torch-light tour of 
the campus. It is the memory of such events that brings a faint 
nostalgia when college life is over. 

The following Friday found fragile formals, fragrant flowers, 
gleaming white coats, mellow music, soft lights, and moderately 
soft drinks — in short, the Junior-Senior Prom! Prom promotion by 
the generous juniors was in the capable hands of Evelyn Ensign 
and George Palmer, with the result that Charlie Agnew provided 
the music for the promenaders among the puny potted palms — an- 
other faintly-perfumed memory to be tied-up in ribbon and stored 

On Saturday, June 3, the seniors who had sufficiently recovered 
from the previous evening's prom straggled Fell Hallward for the 
reception given graduates and alumni by President Fairchild. 


Sunday afternoon, June 4, arrived, and seniors and graduating 
sophomores and anyone else who could beg, borrow, or steal one 
of those few extra tickets, gathered in Capen auditorium to hear 
Dr. Clyde E. Wildman, president of Depauw University, give the 
Baccalaureate sermon. That night they were serenaded with sweet 
music, "especially for them," by the music department. 

Came the dawn of Monday, June 5, and senior and sophomore 
hearts were skipping a beat or five because the day of days had 
arrived. The "condemned," along with others who had already 
traveled that "last mile," ate a hearty dinner at Fell Hall, where 
they exchanged notes with alumni concerning what it was like out- 
side of Normal, anyway. 

The clock in Old Main struck two and cap-and-gown-clad figures 
dashed from all directions to the Metcalf building. After an hour 
of arranging and rearranging the graduates, the band struck up 
"Pomp and Circumstance," and they were on their way — two hun- 
dred faculty members, three hundred and eight seniors, and one 
hundred and ninety sophomores. They filed into the amphitheater, 
neck craning ceased, and Joy Elmer Morgan spoke a few well- 
chosen words. 

After having been duly recommended by their department heads, 
and having received the proverbial handshake from President Fair- 
child, clutching their coveted degrees and diplomas, the six hundred 
graduates of the class of nineteen thirty-nine, A. D., filed back to 
Old Main to receive congratulations and to go, as someone has so 
quaintly said, "out into the field."

HOMECOMING — first, do you remember the bonfire that got "lit"? Rumor had it that the Tekes 
from across the creek did it. Of course those red N's on their gateposts might have given them an 
incentive. With a burned-out bonfire on our hands, there was nothing left to do but snake our 
way to Bloomington . . . the Normalites got to the Courthouse steps, but here in the lower left the 
mob seems to be giving Rabble-rouser Erdmann the runaround . . . nearly everyone got home 
about two, page 39 and the one o'clock closing hour catching alumni and normal Normal stu- 
dents respectively. Came four P. M. Friday and the Tug-of-War . . . the freshmen seem to be hav- 
ing the better time of it . . . perhaps they're used to water Orr their sponsor may have had some- 
thing to do with it. Playing a three-night stand in the Little Theatre off Columbus Circle was Our 
Town, unique for its practically nude stage . . . judging from this picture, it must have been a little 
damp there, too. Through the courtesy of Yates Motors for the second consecutive year, our 
queens ride regally . . . reigning over the entire Homecoming, we find Queen Dolly crowned be- 
fore Old Main in the gym . . . for identification purposes, leaning on the old top rail, Fern Green, 
Queen Vance, Betty Hurdle, "Teeter" Salmon, Mary Rita Kane . . . cream of the crop according to 
the counting. This brings us to the Hobo Parade and face to face with this two-horse opera, War 
Declared Against Egyptians, which won by a nose (see photo-finish ) for that agrarian group, Alpha 
Tau Alpha . . . that fifteen bucks wasn't hay. Transients of the Kindergarten Club's National 
Hobo Convention sagged in for third place and snagged ten dollars. Place position and twelve 
dollars went to the best lick in the whole line, Lowell Mason's Confidentially, Carbondale's Team

Friday night brings the dances and bands — 
four of them, all told. At the Friday night 
opener Templeton drops in after his Consis- 
tory concert and gets in the mood clapping 
to Krupa . . . and to the right we find the 
mob mighty interested in something on stage 
. . . there in the Women's Gym was Messer 
— not so messy in there . . . and then the 
band stepped out and Alec stepped in — 
two swell numbers by a swell fellow . . .

one of the thousand thrills — the clarinet . . .

hands . . . Krupa red hot on White Heat . . . 



Here we have the lead- 
off band in this season's 
series of Co-op parties . . . 
Happy Felton. He's using 
the newest thing in batons 
. . . a whisk broom. We'll 
bet a dollar that the Stu- 
dent Life and Welfare 
Board doesn't know about 
those dark corners in the 

Note center picture . . . 
for a Co-op party, there 
sure is a lot of room in the 
center. Was it a coinci- 
dence that you were look- 
ing this way, Bill? Here we 
are in the game-room and 
is that the Irvin Brothers' 
monopoly over in the north- 
west corner? This is where 
those high scores are made 
and we often wonder . . . 


Ring Throla, Sky Shoot, Bumpit, Hazard Dust Golf, Park- 
a-Ball, Buffalo Bill, Jack-in-the-Beanstalk, Fisherman's 
Luck, Duck Hunting, Klick, Topple Pins, Black Jack, Pin- 
occhio, Casey-at-Bat, Target Busters, Skeet Shoot, Bell 
Ball, Red Man, etc., etc., etc. — no, we're not nuts! This 
is merely a portion, and I said portion, of the list of games 
that people could play at Co-op parties this year. 

Ever hear of a double feature? Well, take an evening 
of playing any of the games listed above (or the fifty 
others that were available during the year), add some 
dancing to any of the orchestras at any of the Co-op 
parties for the year, and you have the best twin bill that 
the Normal campus offers. This is positively not a com- 
mercial — this is on the up and up and just between the 
two of us. We are ready to go to bat any old day or 
night for such collosal goings-on as the Co-op parties 

Of course there are drawbacks (we are being perfectly 
objective and are using the scientific method) to these 
affairs. Everybody in school wants to go and take the gal 
back home along so it is sort of a big party, if you get 
what I mean. However, it is no end of fun — what with 
dancing not only with your partner but with everybody 
else's too. And how people do turn out for these affairs — 
hag, stag, and drag! 

Five times so far this year and maybe six if we're lucky 
(the Council doesn't know for sure yet if there'll be a 
sixth shindig, and we must go to press, so we can't wait 
to find out) those fortunates who had foresight enough 
to purchase one of the little orange booklets that entitled 
them to attend the parties, have clutched their tickets in 
one hand, their girl in the other, and made a mad dash 
down McCormick way. 

November 10 was the first red-letter day on the calen- 
dar of the Cooperative Council, which is the group re- 
sponsible for the parties. On said date all Normal students 
were swinging out to the "Music With a Smile — In the 
Happy Felton Style." Happy Felton and his versatile or- 

ganization dispensed some swing and also a complete 
stage program. One of the special features at the party 
was an I.S.N.U. hit parade. In addition, Gamma Phi mem- 
bers Jim Thorsen and Jesse Parsons performed their regu- 
lar perch pole feat with a 24-foot pole. Needless to say, 
this party left everyone gasping. 

Came the first day in December and everybody donned 
their dancing slippers and trucked right over to hear Ted 
Fio Rita and his orchestra. In addition to all the games 
offered in the Women's Gym the orchestra presented a 
unique floorshow, which had as the high spot the WJBC 
broadcast of the I.S.N.U. hit parade. The first thirty-five 
alumni who wrote requests for tickets were admitted to 
this party. Golly, did we have fun at this affair! 

Co-op Party Number Three was a banner affair because 
the new closing hour of 12 o'clock went into effect. How- 
ever, before the curfew clanged all the guys and gals had 
decided that this February party was O. K. Why? Well, 
Art Kassel and his "Kassels in the Air" were the main at- 
traction of the evening. Students particularly approved 

Here were featuring Ted Fio Rito 
. . . What do you think of the vocal- 
ist, Stretch? Do you remember . . . 
the drummerman . . . the trombones 
on Volga Boatman? Hello, Teeter . . . 


Here's number three on our list 
of bands . . . Art Kassel and his Kas- 
sels in the Air of Hell's Bells fame 
. . . a pretty smooth-looking bunch 
of musicians . . . and in the game 
room we have the usual mob . . . 
note Imogene smiling her prettiest 
for the cameraman . . . contrast . . . 
two people with no interest in pub- 
licity. Returning to the main room, 
we find that Art Kassel is still there 
and that Stretch is still leaning near 
the vocalist. A girl fainted at this 
dance and then, too, the Powers 
T. B. cracked down on us this dance 
with a 12:00 o'clock curfew . . . 


Nothing like plugging a product ... a good product 
too. Right, Mr. Irvin? The crowd likes it . . . 

Number four . . . Boyd Raeburn 
. . . and it's bedtime for the book, 
so we can't wait for Jack McLean 
and possibly another. We've got 
our own opinion of the vocalist 
. . . Camera Craft's Kenny catches 
a close-up . . . Peasie (ex-), 
Chiefy, Toni, Larry . . . more 
plugging a product. This is 
strictly on the candid side; no 
one would pose like that. Boden 
would smoke on campus . . . 

of petite Marion Holmes, the songstress with the band. We 
heard people humming "Doodle de Doo" for days after- 

March winds blew in Boyd Raeburn for the party held 
on the first day of that month. In addition to the "Rhythm 
by Raeburn" the candidates for Gamma Phi Circus Queen 
were introduced. Right purty, too, weren't they? The bal- 
lots for voting were attached to the program for the party. 

Jack McLean and his Melody Lane orchestra were the 
choice of the Co-op Council for the fifth party (book's 
bedtime — no picture). Remember that vocalist? And what 
a time we had! McLean's orchestra featured sweet music 
definitely meant for dancing. Need we add more? This 
party also featured the presentation of the nominees for 
Sophomore Cotillion Queen. 

And so — as we go to press we have on record five per- 
fectly swell parties to thank the Co-op Council for. We 
are keeping our fingers crossed and saying our prayers be- 
cause it is alright with us if there is a sixth party this year. 
As a parting thought, however, may we be permitted to add 
that we are really glad we let ourselves be talked into buy- 
ing one of those little orange booklets! 




December 15 found Capen Auditorium filled with music- 
lovers attending the concert by Percy Grainger, concert 
pianist and composer, who is not only noted for his un- 
rivaled interpretations of Bach but also for his championing 
of the moderns. 

Grainger is no less famous as a composer than he is 
as a piano virtuoso. His "Country Gardens," "Molly on 
the Shore," "Irish Tune from County Derry," and "Shep- 
herd's Hey" are among his better-known works. 

Versatile in still other fields, Grainger has won world- 
wide recognition for his arrangement of folksong themes. 
He featured some of these on his program here — "The 
Merry King," English folksong; "Scotch Strathspey and 
Reel;" and "Maguire's Kick," Irish March-Jig. Also on his 
program were compositions by Bach, Liszt, Chopin, Faure, 
Ravel, and Debussy. 


Under the dynamic leadership of Serge Jaroff, the Don 
Cossacks, famous Russian soldier chorus, presented a con- 
cert in McCormick Gymnasium on October 21. First organ- 
ized as the musical unit in the notorious "Camp of Death" 
at Tehelengir after the defeat of the White army by the 
Bolsheviks, the "Prison Chorus" remained intact and was 
invited to form the choir of the Orthodox St. Sofia 
Cathedral. Later they turned to concert work and present 
on their international programs the colorful folk songs 
and mighty liturgical music of a Russia that is no more.

A man with a voice and a man with "umph" — that was 
James Melton, the popular American tenor, who presented 
a concert in McCormick Gymnasium on March 2. Combin- 
ing an accomplished artistry with a radiant personality, 
Mr. Melton performed before one of the most enthusiastic 
of Normal audiences during the year. 

Since beginning a professional career back in his Uni- 
versity of Tennessee days, Mr. Melton has sung his way 
into the hearts of many of the American people. He is 
recognized for his excellent interpretations of Negro spir- 
ituals, national folk songs, and recently made his debut 
on the operatic stage. His program here included Wolfe's 
"Sugar Plum," Irish airs, and classic selections. 

Mr. Fraley, Mr. Melton, Dr. Browne, 
Mr. Evans 

Mr. Harper, Mr. Adamic 


Third offering on the Lecture Board's schedule for the 
year was Louis Adamic, writer and social historian. Born 
in Jugoslavia and now a citizen of the United States, novel- 
ist Adamic was not unknown to many when he lectured 
here on February 24. Many students were familiar with 
his writings, which include "My America," "The Native's 
Return," and "Cradle of Life." 

Lecturing on "Let's Become Americanized — All of Us," 
Mr. Adamic's theme was the maintenance of tolerance in 
this country as an indication of true democracy. He pointed 
out that this tolerance must be accompanied by a recogni- 
tion and respect for the traits of one another and that 
service to men of all classes was imperative. After tracing 
immigration problems in the history of the United States, 
he discussed the effect of difference in race on the people 
in America today.

These scenes too!; place under the bridge . . . remember? 

"Wihterset," a modern melodrama by Maxwell Ander- 
son, was Miss Mabel Clare Allen's choice for the 1939 
commencement play. The leading character, Mio, was 
convincingly handled by Dane Harris. Other outstanding 
performances were given by Margaret Parret in the role 
of Miriamne, Shields Logsden as the tubercular gangster 
Trock, and Robert Carlock as Garth, Miriamne's brother. 
The production was exceptionally well handled in stag- 
ing and lighting. 


:&*?-tirtw : ?* 

Our town was treated to a long-anticipated perform- 
ance when "Our Town" was produced as the annual 
Homecoming play. The three-night run featured Jim De 
Pew in the leading role of the stage manager who opened 
the play, set the stage, and introduced the other charac- 
ters. Selected by Miss Allen to work in the supporting cast 
were Marvin Wilson, Lester Litwiller, Norma Anthony, Don- 
ald Veith, Evalynne Ammons, James Delzell, Reva Finfrock, 
and Dee Norton.

Here we have the soda fountain and wedding . . . they got 
along pretty well with a minimum of props, didn't they? 



Jesters and the University Theatre selected Kaufman and 
Hart's Pulitzer prize-winning play "You Can't Take It With 
You" for their annual production. Harold Hanner, a vet- 
eran of Jesters, played the leading role of Grandpa Van- 
derhof. Marian DePew, a newcomer to I.S.N.U. dramatic 
productions, took the part of Alice Vanderhof, the heroine. 
Deserving of credit in this production was the props com- 
mittee which had to provide everything from a xylophone 
to a Roman candle. 

This was a crazy household and a darn good play 

The sixth annual Blackfriar review was presenfed in 
Capen auditorium on February 22 and 23. Larry Hayes 
and Al Berry were the co-authors of this year's production, 
"Stage Window." Featuring such artists as George Sider, 
Dave Palowski, Lyle Neer, and Don Fitzsimmons; a chorus 
with such beauties as Ray Wesley, Stanley Breen, and Jack 
Catlin; and an orchestra led by Mike Locascio, the produc- 
tion took its place along with "Music Mad" and "Insom- 
ania." N 



"Family Portrait" was the selection of Theta Alpha Phi 
for their annual play which they gave at the time of the 
Theta Alpha Phi national convention. Margaret Parret, a 
veteran performer in the University Theatre, took the role 
of Mary, mother of Jesus. Others in the cast included Dane 
Harris, Betty Hurdle, Lawrence Therien, Lois Halliday, 
Dorothy McFadden, William Staker, Shields Logsden, Wade 
Hannah, and Carolyn Lillibridge.

An outstanding feature of the University Club's annual 
Weekend in the spring is the Stunt Show. When all was 
said and done, the judges had given the first place reward 
to the Commerce Club for their take-off on Ferdinand the 
Bull. Second place went to the Art Club for their skit of 
sketching. The real hit of the Show, however, was as usual 
the Faculty Stunt which featured a swing band.

Normal Hour 

WJBC . . . presents . . . daily ... the Illinois State Nor- 
mal University Radio Program . . . better known as the Nor- 
mal Hour . . . from the Tower Studio in Cook Hall. 

How many of their programs did you hear? If you were 
tuned in, you might have heard the Children's Story Hour, 
a weekly feature. Or you might have listened to enlighten- 
ing answers in the Consumer Quiz Club of the Air, con- 
ducted by the University High School consumer chemistry 
classes. Alternating programs on Fridays were the two lit- 
erary societies, Wrightonia and Philadelphia. 

Were you listening to any of the programs sponsored by 
the Music department? Those of you with domestic inclina- 
tions probably heard the programs sponsored by the Home 
Economics department faculty and the Home Economics 
Club. Miss Ruth Henline was responsible for those Tuesday 
evening "Alumni Club of the Air" programs. 

Do your remember the early morning broadcasts by the 
Division of Agriculture? The Ag Club also sponsored other 
programs. Miss Marshall's Early Illinois History skits were 
another feature on WJBC. Still a different type of program 
was the Visiting High Schools' weekly offering. 

Special broadcasts included those of the Religious Week, 
those of Education Week, the Percy Grainger concert, part 
of the discussion at the Round-Up of School Administrators, 
the Christmas service, and the British debate. 

Mrs. Laura H. Pricer chairmanned the faculty committee 
which included Mr. Fogler, Mr. Peithman, Mr. Koepke, Miss 
Marshall, Miss Yates, and Mrs. Hall. 

All in all, there were 731 different participants during 
the first semester of the school year. Besides all those who 
arose to practice scripts, and all those who stayed up 
nights to write them, there were two student operators in 
the studio — Dee Filson and Dane Harris.

There are on the campus a number of musical 
groups which are active not only in school affairs 
but also in off-campus affairs. These groups are 
not a definite part of the scheduled extra-curricular 
activities of the music department, but they have

The editorial staff clock- 
wise — Hubbard, Brenne- 
man, Martin, Morey, Wil-

der, Shipley, Jaeger 

The Vidette Staff 

After sprinting up a staggering series of stairs, we fin- 
ally reach the top, slide into the first doorway, stop, squint 
to see what we can see, and there he is — "The Chief," 
Hal Hubbard. He's trying to hide behind all that debris on 

the editor's desk but we can tell that it's His Nibs the 

editor-in-chief of the Vidette. He leaves us breathless, but 
we are still able to gasp, "What a man — he's responsible 
for those editorials that received All-Columbian rating in 
the Columbia Scholastic Press Association annual news- 
paper contest." 

Before we can erase the awe-struck look from our faces, 
more satellites sail into this Mecca of Normal and abnormal 
news, so we just keep on being in this slap-happy state. 
Associate editors deluxe, Ellen Brenneman and Jerry Mar- 
tin, are those two girls wondering about those headlines 
they'll have to write and that six-inch story that should go 
into the four-inch space on page five. The two people who 
are trying to find out who knows what's going to happen 
when and where and who knows the most about that's 
going to happen anywhere at anytime are News Editors 
Stein and Wilkinson. 

We're still dazed but are suddenly snapped out of it 
when the one-cylinder crystal set blares forth with a mighty 
blast just as sports editor Fitzsimmons has hopes of finally 
making the attaches at the gym understand that he is call- 
ing for late information to fill that gaping hole in the 
sports page. "Fitz" was promoted from assistant sports 
editor to his present position when Roy Russell did not re- 
turn for the second semester of school. That chap over in the 
corner chewing the end of a pencil or, if he's lucky, pound- 
ing a typewriter, is right-hand man Bob Smith. We're not 
worried about his assignment; he'll get it in for the dead- 
line — we hope.

staff pictured on page 
1 97 . . . 


It's columnist Bernard Morey who's giving our nervous 
system a trial as he precariously tilts his chair and props 
his feet on the radiator while concentrating "On the Side- 
track." Even Lloyd's of London, don't you know, wouldn't 
insure him if they knew the risk involved. Our hearts are 
beating at a speed that would make even our "Duke of the 
Drums" envious when the Vidette's "Girl Friday," Margot 
Patterson, comes in with all the dope from an interview 
with someone we ought to know something about. We 
have to take a quick look because she'll tear away in an- 
other minute. As she breezes through the door we hear a 
"Hi, Jean. Hi, lola." It must be the women's sports editors, 
Stoops and Strange. Uh-huh. They know there's work to 
be done. Following them is columnist June Jaeger. She 
just came up to see how things were going — no use in 
rushing those deadlines. 

We've been wondering what name that redhead over in 
the corner by the files answers to and now we find out that 
it is Raymond Pettigrew of advertising fame. He is evi- 
dently telling super, super salesmen Riddle and McBride 
that every inch they sell means more shekels in the coffer. 
And if they don't believe it they can just ask bookkeeper 
Mary Teresa Salmon. They are just about to consult 
"Teeter" on the problem when salesman-extraordinary 
Broughton drops in, and the speeches have to be repeated 
all over again. Then a final pep talk is given by the rag's 
financial adjustor, business manager Beth Davis, who knows 
what she's talking about when she says that you can't run 
a paper without money. This mercenary miss finishes with 
the famous last line "So it's up to you people to never say 
'die', but 'Why don't you advertise'." 

Eleanor Dalton and Lucille Stewart are checking over 
the mailing list and exchange editors Bryan and Gilmore 
are sorting papers. Busy place, this office. 

We are about worn to a frazzle from having seen so much 
in such a short time when sponsor Professor Johnson comes 
out and asks us if we had a good time at the Vidette 
banquet. We have to admit that it was pretty wonderful. 

We stop to congratulate "The Chief" and the staff on 
having achieved First Class rating in the National Scholastic 
Press Association Contest, and then we buzz away because 
it's bedtime for the rag.

The sign on the door just says "THE 1940 INDEX" so 
unless you've worked down there you'd never know about 
the sign "Don't cut this class" that's under the clock; or 
the wall decorations that run from class schedules to an 
outline of the book; or the sagging shelves along the 
north wall that served as lockers for so many people; or 
the blackboard with its daily messages; or the telephone 
numbers scribbled on the wall; or the two new desks; or 
the smell of rubber cement; or the clattering of typewriters 
as copy is pounded out; or the checking and rechecking 
that is necessary before a page can be sent in; or the hun- 
dred other things that make up a big part of the life of 
INDEX staff members. 

When he wasn't down at Camera Craft Studio getting 
the latest prints, or down at Pantograph Printing & Sta- 
tionery seeing about copy, or busy seeing all the people 
he had to see, then Editor Jim "Killer" Cameron was down 
in the little office just off Climb's Stair, directing the activi- 
ties of your 1940 INDEX. He was aided and abetted by 
Virginia "Dunny" Dunmire, the business manager, who, 
being a clever miss, could pinch-hit in a number of situa- 
tions. Almost any time of day or night you could find Or- 
ganizations Editor "Dottie" Shea typing away on copy. 
The other genius who helped "Dottie" pound out reams 
and reams of copy (well, if you don't believe me measure 
it out for yourself) so that you could have all the informa- 


tion on Gotta Coppa Poppa's simply wunnerful year was 
Jeanette Eymann — known in official terms as the Assistant 
Organizations Editor. 

That fellow who drew panels and more panels was 
Mort "Bogen" Filerman, the layout editor. People who 
spent their moments doing odd jobs of one kind and an- 
other were the three freshman workers, Jean Albee, Wen- 
dell Anderson, and Jim Finley. People who spent their 
moments doing still other odd jobs as the need arose were 
the versatile assistant editors Wilma Bailey, Jack Catlin, 
and Harold Classen. Doing a bit of this and a bit of that 
and a bit of somethin' else was the duty of "Gar" Huggins 
and Merlin "Buddy" Erdmann, the associate editors. And 
Buddy really was a buddy in more than one situation — or 
am I speaking out of turn? 

Roy Hostettler was men's sports editor, assisted by Jack, 
alias "Queen," Childress, who proved his ability by his 
agility in crawling windows (see page 225), Larry 
Hayes, John Baldini, Bob Smith, and Jim "Ace" Hardgrove. 
Women's sports editors were Pauline Van Raemdonk and 
Betty Nelson. 

Others whose programs were posted on the office walls 
were Evie Ensign, Jane Holland, and Keith Davidson, class 
editors; Wayne Gross and Sammy Nicholas, student photog- 
raphers; Dorothy Classen and Jim DePew, assistant busi- 
ness managers; Rose Naseef, typist; and Carl Erwin, calen- 
dar editor. 

If we had a "Thanks" gallery on the wall we'd reserve 
special space for Mrs. Marion Taylor, faculty editorial ad- 
visor, Mr. Ralph Boyd, faculty business advisor, Anse Cox 
of G. R. Grubb and Company, and Ed Bryan and Carl 
Sargent of the Pantograph Printing and Stationery.
